Abstract
This project was part of the relocation and new construction of the farm main ballpark and related facilities for "Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks Farm", the minor league team of the professional baseball team "Fukuoka Softbank Hawks", necessitated by the aging of their existing facilities. This paper describes an outline of the indoor practice ground in the facilities.The indoor practice ground described here has a plan shape of 64 m by 64 m, a height of 23 m. The structural form of the large roof includes a parallel chord truss with a diamond shape in plan in the center of the roof, with steel tubes extending from the peripheral frame to the lower chord level of the 4 corners of the diamond shaped truss, so that the diamond shaped truss is suspended. Vertical braces were provided in the 4 corners of the building to provide resistance to horizontal forces.
