There are so many different types of sports fields –  footballbaseballsoftball, and soccer, and each has its requirements when it comes to their needs and level of play. Understanding the needs and use of a sports field is paramount for achieving the right light levels and creating balanced lighting in the outdoor space. Understanding pole locations, mounting heights, or providing new pole locations is all part of the design.

Unfortunately, there is no one right answer as every sport field is unique, and it depends on the level of play. Further complicating that, baseball and softball fields have different requirements for infield and outfield lighting. The best approach is to contact us, tell us about your sports field needs and your goals, and have us put together a lighting plan for you.
