Baseball Field Lighting

May 1, 2008
Many companies make safety their number one priority when it comes to baseball field lighting. This is because so many of our clients are pee wee and little league associations who have limited budgets but still need to light their baseball fields with the best possible illumination. Many of these organizations are often tempted to invest in retail grade stadium lighting kits that bundle light fixtures and mounting arms into one convenient package. Beyond the face value savings of these cheaper baseball field lights lies trouble, however. The wattage output is often too bright for smaller fields and creates blinding glare that creates unsafe playing conditions. The fixtures themselves are also less likely to withstand the elements after two or three seasons, and the mounting arms offer little, if any, flexibility for custom adjustment. Sometimes the poles and fixtures don't even fit together at all, making what appears to be a frugal investment in affordable baseball field lights a waste of money in the long run.

The best lighting for a baseball field is not necessarily the brightest light at the cheapest price, but rather the most evenly distributed and glare-free light. To create this effect, it is necessary to do two things. First, you must spend the money on top-quality commercial grade fixtures that are fitted with reflectors that will spread the light beam evenly across the field. Secondly, you must secure the lights at just the right height to keep both the field itself illuminated and provide mid-air lighting for the ball in play. Pre-configured kits with fixed pole lengths and fixtures pre-installed do not allow you to manually set the fixtures to the necessary height. For best results, you should purchase your lighting poles and mounts separately from the fixtures themselves, then have the lighting array designed specific to the dimensions of the baseball diamond itself.

Companies can supply baseball field lights in wattages ranging from 400 to 1500 watts in intensity. These fixtures feature tempered flat glass and powder coated die cast housing. This enables your lights to withstand extremes in weather and temperature. To further ensure longevity, each lighting fixture is fitted with a multi-tap ballast for better voltage regulation and energy efficiency. This ensures years of reliable lighting and cost-conscious use of electricity.

Many companies baseball field lights also offer you precise photometric control with anodized aluminum reflectors in 2, 4, 5, or 6 optic measurements that evenly distribute illumination and dispel blinding glare. These reflectors allow fixtures with even minimal wattage to light entire portions of a field. For example, one 400watt sports lighter placed at home plate can easily light the infield of a little league diamond provided it is placed at the proper height and equipped with the correct type and number of reflectors. Your company specialist can help you with calculations of this nature in order to ensure you invest wisely in equipment that is safe, efficient, and built to last.

If your baseball field already has lighting poles in place, your company specialist can fit them with new mounting arms and fixtures as part of our shipping service. If you require new lighting poles, we carry these as well in any size necessary to light peewee, little league, private league, and minor league baseball fields.

If the cost of commercial grade baseball field sports lighting is daunting to your Spartan budget, please ask a company specialist to locate what you need in good, used condition. This often saves small municipalities and private clubs up to 40 percent in equipment purchase costs, and there is no charge for our consultation and procurement assistance services.
