What are LED Baseball Field Lights and how well do they replace Metal Halide lighting?

The most commonly used lights for baseball fields are usually metal halides. These types of led ball field lights can range from 400 to 1500 watts. Most baseball fields use 1500-watt lights, because of the need for high-intensity lighting.

High Power LED Field lighting can easily replace metal halide lights used on baseball fields, one for one. They produce high lumen – high quality lighting. They turn on instantly and are virtually maintenance free. How do you know what light is best for you?

The best way to start is to have us create a lighting plan based on your needs and requirements. The plan will allow us to design and set the lights to achieve the right amount of foot candles. We can also check the balance across the playing surface.

Types of Lights for Baseball Field

The most common types of lights for baseball fields were metal halides. This is due to the fact that these sports lights range in watts from 400 – 1500 and for sports fields in most cases 1500 watts lights are used since they are producing high-intensity lighting.

Is LED Stadium Lights Better Than Metal Halide?

Yes, on many levels. First, you can expect energy savings of at least 50%. Your maintenance cost will drop as there will be no bulbs to change. It’s well known that HID / Metal Halide Sports Lights lumens drop over a short period of time. That’s not an issue with LED Baseball Stadium Lights.

Plus, LED Baseball Field Lighting Fixtures are instant on and instant off. So, you can use the lighting right away. There’s no need to turn on the lights 30 minutes before they’re needed.

What are the benefits when using LED lights for baseball fields?

By far the biggest benefits are:

High quality lighting that will last for many years to come.

How Does LED Lighting Supply’s LED Baseball Field Lights Compare To Musco Lighting?

Musco offers a very high-feature and performance system that you typically see in professional stadiums that can include specialized RGB lighting and sophisticated controls for the fixtures. The cost level is reflective of this advanced functionality for their baseball field lighting system.

In comparison, LED Lighting Supply primarily focuses on school and recreational baseball fields. We offer both cost-competitive and performance options for baseball fields that meet the needs of most schools and recreational applications.

What fixtures do you recommend for baseball park lights?

We’ve had a lot of success using our family of high-power sports flood lights. They can easily match and exceed the output of the old-style HID lights, and have optic packages available that allow us to light up almost any field.

Can LED Baseball Field Lights Replace Metal Halide?

Yes, and we can replace these lights one for one. We have powerful LED Baseball Field Lights that can replace 1000 Watt to 2000 Watt HID / MH. And your existing lighting infrastructure should be good enough for LED lights. Since it uses a lot less electricity than these older fixtures do.


How much are LED Baseball Field Lights?

Baseball field lighting cost can vary based on the light levels you are trying to achieve. We do 2-5 lighting plans a week for high school, college and community baseball fields and the costs are usually within the range of $25,000 to $100,000 for the lights.

Adding light poles for baseball fields would be an additional over cost of lights.

One common layout uses 8 poles, 4 in the infield area and 4 in the outfield. One common request is 50-foot candles in the infield and 30-foot candles in the outfield. We can do this using 48 400 Watt LED fixtures. From there, the math is pretty similar. If half the foot candles is acceptable, then you can use the same layout using the same 200 Watt LED fixture.

Other layouts we’ve developed lighting plans for are 6 poles and 4 poles for smaller recreational fields.

How Much Do Little League Field Lights Cost?

Once we know your requirements, we can come up with a quote. The actual cost per fixture depends on the fixture we use to meet your lighting requirements.

How to Select the Most Suitable Model of Light for Your Baseball Field?

The best way to start is to determine how many foot candles you need in the infield and outfield. And whether you are going to use your existing pole locations or new locations. Guessing is never correct, especially when it comes to baseball field lighting. Power, lumens, fixture count, and beam angles play a big part in finding the best lighting solution.

We would not recommend buying used lights. Buying used lighting is hoping the lights will work out, with a very low probability of success.

What Is the Recommended Pole Height?

There is no recommended pole height, other than some basic rules, such as – higher is better than lower. It’s easier to light a field from 35 feet over 20 feet. For the most part, we can light a field with pole heights of 30 feet or higher.

What Optics Should I Use for LED Baseball Field Lights?

There is no one optic that meets all needs. It depends on your pole heights and lighting requirements. A lighting plan will sort that all out for you. Fixture, wattage, lumens, optics, number of fixtures, and where to point them. Everything will become much clearer.

Yes, but it’s better to do a pole at a time, rather than replacing individual lights.


How Do I Aim the Lighting When Installing Lights on a Baseball Field?

A lighting plan shows you where each light’s aiming point’s located on the field. Mark all those locations on the field with a flag. We can provide a laser pointer that will allow you to aim each fixture at the flag on the field. LEDs are very tolerant. The direction does not need to be exact.
