    How Misting Fans Give Summer Baseball Teams a Competitive Edge

    Though baseball season starts and ends in chilly weather, most games are played during scorching temperatures. That said, the intense heat of summer causes many players to drip with sweat—even if they are just standing in right field without any action. But isn't that what baseball is all about: the grit of playing under the brutal sun, sliding around and getting dirty, and battling through the elements to prove your team is the team to beat? Of course, it is! However, these conditions can lead to things like sunburn, dehydration, and symptoms of heat stress, such as muscle cramps, dizziness, and fatigue.

    Commercial & Personal Uses for Misting Fans: Keep Children Safe And Playgrounds Cool

    As the weather warms up, kids spend more time outside. Even in this age of tablets and smartphones, with adults constantly shaking their heads about how much time kids spend staring at screens, playgrounds tend to be swarming with kids once springtime hits.

    Summer is the time for sports.

However, if you're looking for a way to keep cool while still getting into the spirit of the season, then it might be time to think about setting up misting fans on your home field. If you're thinking of those fans you often see on restaurant patios that keep things cool for the outdoor patrons, those are exactly the same fans we're talking about.
