General Information: LED Baseball Field Lights
What are LED Baseball Field Lights?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 FieldThe most common types of lights for baseball fields were metal halides. This is because these sports lights range in watts from 400 – 1500 and for sports fields in most cases 1500 watts lights are used since they produce high-intensity lighting.
LED Stadium Lights are Better than Metal HalideYes, 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. 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.
Benefits of Using LED Lights for Baseball FieldsBy far the biggest benefits are:
- Instant on / Instant off
- Big savings on your lighting bill
- 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.
LED Fixtures We Recommend for Baseball Park LightsWe’ve had a lot of success using our family of high-power sports floodlights. 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.
LED Baseball Field Lights to Replace Metal HalideWe 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.
Before You Buy: LED Baseball Field Lights
LED Baseball Field Lights CostBaseball field lighting costs 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 overcost 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 are 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.
Little League Field LED Lights CostOnce 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. There are several baseball field lighting companies on the market with very high-end and expensive fixtures. Little league fields do not need this level of sophistication to make the players and parents happy.
Number of Light Fixtures Needed for Baseball Field LightingThere is no one-size-fits-all solution. We provide free lighting plans to give you this answer. Our lighting plans can give you a roadmap on how many and what type of lighting will meet your needs.
Best Height for Baseball Field LightsThere is no minimum height. Based on our experience, we’ve found that higher pole height is better than lower pole height. It’s easier to achieve balanced lighting with higher mounting locations. Many of the fields we create lighting plans for range from 30 to 60 feet.
Selecting the Best LED Baseball Field LightingThe 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.
Main Points for Baseball Field Lighting Design
- How much light do you need in the infield or outfield?
- Are there poles? Where are they located? Do you need pole locations?
- What are the light mounting heights?
- How many lights per pole do you currently have – if any?
- How do the current fixtures mount – if any?
- What is your budget?
Number of Light Poles Needed to Light a Baseball FieldFor recreational, high school, little league field lights, and other related fields, we have found 4 infield poles and 4 outfield poles are enough. But we have also done fields with 6 poles.
Recommended Pole Height for a Baseball FieldThere 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.
Best Color Temperature for LED Baseball LightingWe found that the best color temperature is 5000K. 4000K would be a second choice if you’re looking for a warmer light.
Best Optic Choices for LED Baseball Field LightsNo one optic 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.
Best Foot Candle Levels for Different Levels of Baseball PlayThe table below reflects the guidelines for baseball field lighting. Infield lighting levels are higher than the outfield levels.
Different Levels of Play and Foot Candle Lighting Requirements
|Outfield (FCs)||Infield (FCs)||Outfield FCs (Max/Min)||Infield FCs (Max/Min)|
|Collegiate Field Lighting||50||70||2.5||2|
|High School Field Lighting||30||50||2.5||2|
|Little League Baseball Field Lighting||30||50||2.5||2|
|Recreational Field Lighting||20||30||2.5||2|
Calculate the Number of Fixtures Needed for a Baseball Field Lighting LayoutThe good news is that you don’t have to worry about that. The lighting layout will do the calculations and tell you the number of fixtures you’ll need to meet your lighting requirements.
LED Lumens to Light a Baseball FieldPer fixture, each light should be at least 56,000 lumens or greater. This amount of lumens is enough to replace a 1000 Watt Metal Halide Light. Lumens can go up or down (per fixture) based on the lighting needs of the specific baseball field.
Replacing Some of My Baseball Field Lights Now and Some LaterYes, but it’s better to do a pole at a time, rather than replacing individual lights.
