What are LED Baseball Field Lights?

LED Lights for Baseball fields are powerful, and bright and provide a high-quality light source. These types of LED ball field lights range from 400 watts to 1200 watts. We typically light baseball fields with either a 400 Watt or 600 Watt LED sports light.

High Power LED field lights can easily replace metal halide lights used on baseball fields. They produce high lumen – high-quality lighting. They turn on instantly and are virtually maintenance-free.

Voltage options range from 100 - 277 Volts or 277 - 480 Volts. The best color temperature for baseball fields is 5000K. 4000K would be a second choice if you’re looking for a warmer light.

In choosing the best optics for lighting, no one optic meets all needs. It depends on your pole heights and lighting requirements. A lighting plan will sort that all out for you. A lighting plan will detail the fixture, wattage, lumens, optics, number of fixtures, and where to point them.

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

Ten years ago, the 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. This is no longer the best option

LED Lights are Better than Metal Halide to Light Up a Baseball Field

  • First, you can expect energy savings of at least 50%.
  • We can replace metal halide sports lights with LED lights one for one.
  • Your maintenance cost will drop as there will be no bulbs or ballasts to change.
  • No lumen depreciation with LED. It’s well known that HID / Metal Halide Sports Lights lumens drop over a short period.
  • LED Baseball Field Lighting Fixtures are instant on and instant off.

Benefits of Using LED Lights for Baseball Fields

  • Instant on / Instant off
  • Big savings on your lighting bill
  • High-quality lighting that will last for many years to come.
  • Superior playing experience for fans and athletes

LED Baseball Field Lights Costs

Baseball 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. You can find both fixtures in the list above.

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

Little League Field LED 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. 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.

Best Foot Candle Levels for Different Levels of Baseball Play

The table below reflects the guidelines for baseball field lighting. Infield lighting levels are higher than the outfield levels.

Outfield (FCs) Infield (FCs) Outfield FCs (Max/Min) Infield FCs (Max/Min)
Collegiate (Televised) 70 100 2.5 2
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

How Many LED Light Fixtures are Needed for Baseball Field Lighting?

There 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.

How Many LED Lumens Are Needed to Light a Baseball Field?

Per 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.

What's the Best Height to Mount Baseball Field Lights?

There 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.

How to Select the Best LED Baseball Field Lighting

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.

How Many Light Poles Are Needed to Light a Baseball Field?

For 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.

What's the Best Way to Aim New LED Lighting When Installing Lights on a Baseball Field?

A lighting plan shows you where each light’s aiming point is 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.

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?

Calculate the Number of Fixtures Needed for a Baseball Field Lighting Layout

The 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.
