LED Lighting Requirements for a Baseball Field


A baseball field has different requirements when it comes to lighting. The baseball field is compatible with the renowned tournament, such as Minor and Major League Baseball. One of the major aspects of a baseball field is the lighting. Little league games do not require the same light amount as World Series games. It is significant to follow the recommended foot candles. You may have to deal with poor lighting if you focus only on reducing costs.

A baseball field requires higher lighting levels as compared to other sports activities. When we talk about sports lighting, sports with fast-moving and small objects must be illuminated intensely than large gaming objects closer to the ground like soccer.

Baseball is quite unique as the baseball field size varies and this entirely depends on the gaming level. For instance, little league baseball fields have smaller dimensions. So, the dimensions continue to increase in size as the game level increases. The biggest factor in determining how much lighting will be needed is the field’s size.

Plus, it dictates how many lighting fixtures you should use and where you should place the lighting poles. The location of the lighting poles is even affected by seats and bleachers. A baseball field that does not have seats or bleachers does not need lots of lighting fixtures. Our lighting experts take this into consideration before they formulate lighting options for your baseball field.

This table displays the average of the commonly employed guidelines for baseball court lighting. Also, outfield lighting levels are lower than the infield levels.

Infield is the place where the direct action between the batter and the pitcher mostly takes place. That’s why improved visibility is very important. The above lighting guidelines also apply to a recreational baseball field. Visibility plays an important role in every sporting activity.

Also, you may be thinking about what the max/min lighting needs stand for. The max/min ratio refers to the median between the maximum quantity of horizontal lux or foot-candles and the minimum quantity of horizontal lux or foot-candles on a surface.

This max/min ratio is quite significant in the sports lighting system. It helps LED lighting professionals to decide if there is any space of hot spots, shadows, or glare on a field or surface. A ratio, that falls under 3, is usually considered the best due to the even lighting. 

However, a max/min ratio that goes above 3 might denote that there are spotty light areas. When we talk about baseball lighting, it is best to go with a ratio of around 2 for all game levels in the infield and with a ratio of around 2.5 in the outfield.

Baseball Field LED Lighting Design

Why is it important to get photometrics done? Photometrics allows people to examine their area. With the help of photometrics, they can see how it would appear with LED lighting without even taking any risk of purchasing. Our lighting experts run various options with LEDs and offer the right guidance. We are here to help you save money with innovative LED lighting solutions. At the same time, it is significant to get your lighting right.

Why select The Lighting Center LED Baseball Stadium Lights?

135 lm/w
160 lm/w

Higher Luminous Efficacy (Lumens/Watt)

Luminous efficacy indicates the bulb’s performance mainly. It is measured as the lumens produced for every watt of consumed electricity. It calculates how amazingly a lamp can produce visible light. This is typically calculated in lumens.

We provide you with Baseball Stadium LED Lights having incredible efficacy ratings. So, this can save more money than the old generation Stadium LED Lights.

70 CRI
80 CRI

Higher CRI

The color rendering index indicates how great colors will appear under a specific light source. It designates how a lamp makes a thing look to our eyes. When the color rendering index is higher, the color rendering capability of a bulb is better.

When we talk about sports lighting, CRI should be around 70 or above. We offer sports lighting solutions with 70 CRI and 80 CRI.


Incredible Heat Dissipation

So, a heat sink prevents LED lighting options from becoming dead due to overheating. Great heat sinks are typically manufactured with pure aluminum that features an incredible heat-conducting rate around 238W/mk. When the aluminum value is higher, its conductivity rate is also higher. A great heat dissipation system must offer sufficient air ventilation passage.

However, there needs to be space between every row of LED lighting chips. Plus, the structure needs to be hollow for reducing air resistance. This assists in transferring heat from the bulb to the nearby area. Also, this heat dissipation section needs to be dense and large. Aluminum fins hasten the cooling procedure.


Higher Voltage Options

We provide both high voltage solutions of 277V-480V and standard voltage solutions of 100V-277V. This even includes Standard Canadian High Voltage of 347V.

Our baseball stadium lights even come with 20kVA and 10kVA surge suppression solutions. This keeps the lights safe in harsh weather conditions.

High Power Options

OurBaseball Stadium LED Lights generate lumens from 33,000 to 133,000. A blend of high lumens – high power LED lighting and optics could lighten up sports fields with energy-saving LEDs.

Our team can generate a photometric evaluation for free for your outdoor field. This is just to show how incredibly our Sports LED Lights work. This will even show which model works fine and which optic offers great results for an outdoor area.

The Perfect Beam Angle

Usually, the beam angle dictates the light’s distribution. When the beam angle is wider, the uniformity of light is higher and the brightness will be lower on the ground. However, when the beam angle is too narrow, the uniformity of light is a bit low. Despite the brightness, there are various dark spots.

Select lights that feature the right beam angle that balances the uniformity of light with brightness. Lighting engineers on our team can show this by performing a free photometric analysis. This helps in selecting lighting options with the right beam angle.


Glare Rating

Although glare rating is seldom stated, it plays a significant role in sports LED lighting. Too much glare might lead to discomfort visually and cause persons to squint when they play or watch a game. Also, it may impair the visualization of objects and details. For instance, players may not be able to view fast-moving balls. Plus, glare reduces the light’s brightness in several areas.

Our LED lighting solutions come with advanced lenses, which decrease the light leakage by around 50% and focus on the lighting beam.

*Baseball Stadium LED Light Choice

Glare ratings for every lighting fixture employed in a top-level competition should be 50. Lighting fixtures employed in an intermediate-level competition should also feature a glare rating of 50. However, light fixtures employed in athletics should have a glare rating of 55. For a low-level competition, lighting options should have a glare rating of 55, except fixtures employed in lawn bowls, which need to have a glare rating of 50.


Color Temperature

For sporting fields, organizations state the correlated color temperature (or the minimum allowable color temperature). The NCAA requires lighting options with a CCT around 3600K or above.

Human eyes adapt greatly to lighting sources with diverse color temperatures, whereas digital cameras and Television do not. They need to be adjusted for displaying the colors that humans tend to see. That’s why it is quite significant for LED lighting solutions in sports venues to get the right correlated color temperature. Otherwise, TV cameras will show irritating color shifts when they will move around the field.

The Intangible Advantage of Changing to Stadium LED Lights

They Enhance the Gaming Experience

LED lighting options improve sports for the fans. Not just that, but these lights also enhance it for the game players. When Stadium LED lights were put on at one race track, drivers informed that there were uniform light and reduced glare. Precise fixture and pole placement with progressive lenses ensure the drivers had great visibility.

When LED lighting options are installed on baseball fields or hockey rinks, they offer uniform light. This assists the gamers in seeing the hockey puck’s or the baseball’s speed. If your metal halide lighting solutions are employed in such areas, they generate dark and bright spots.

As the baseball travels across a shadow produced by dark spots, it seems to be speeding up or slowing down. This is a drawback to players who only gets a second for determining the ball’s position.

Great for Broadcasting

Metal halide lighting options may offer sufficient lighting to sports arenas and stadiums. However, they were not built with TV broadcasts of today in mind. The point is that cameras do not see light as human eyes see it. Modern digital cameras pick up red, green, and blue spectrums. It blends these colors for creating digital broadcasting.

Also, lighting that functions for fans who stand out there will not function for fans who watch the play from home. However, many sports venues cannot broadcast in ultra HD, with the right lighting. The lighting systems cannot work with 8K or 4K broadcasts. That’s another reason why sports arenas and stadiums must improve LED technology.

Another great benefit of LEDs is that these lights do not flicker. Meaning that LED lighting solutions would not affect slow-motion replays with a flashing, distracting effect. So, baseball stadium lighting features a significant role to play in the safety and performance of players. That’s why it needs to be planned diligently. Now, you can select and install the correct LED lighting in your baseball stadium from our baseball field LED lighting options. Our team of lighting professionals is willing and always ready to assist you to design, purchase, and install the right lighting.
