Light Up Your Baseball Field!

By Kimberly Quang

Baseball field lighting requires a number of things to be taken into consideration to ensure that the field is evenly lit for maximum visibility in both the infield and the outfield. Preconfigured baseball field lights often fail to do this because they offer inappropriate wattage to light smaller baseball fields, or because they are designed only for fields in a specific type of league. Poorly designed retail-grade fixtures run the risk of weathering rapidly, first rusting and presenting an unsightly nuisance, then later deteriorating to the level that internal components and wires become exposed and short circuit with exposure to humidity. Baseball field lights that come pre-fitted to a mounting arm may look like a good all in one deal, but they often become more of a nuisance with procurement passes them to the installers, who then discover after the fact that the mounting arms don't quite fit the poles the right way, and the lights themselves are therefore useless. Finally, many facility managers, owners, and municipalities frequently overspend by buying too many baseball field lights, unaware that certain commercial grade fixtures can be fitted with reflectors that magnify and further cast a brighter, more intense field of light. Baseball field lighting is so much simpler than all of this. Because we know that baseball fields vary greatly in size per location, ownership, and league status, we sell fixtures and mounting brackets separately. This allows procurement personnel to first study the lighting poles and any currently installed fixtures to see which of our mounting brackets will best fit their existing configuration. Secondly, we provide the lights separately in varying degrees of wattage and corresponding intensities. Our lighting fixtures can also multifunction as arena lights in other sports and public events, which is an added benefit of equipment obtained through RLLD's adaptive, highly specialized inventory. These fixtures are extremely tough and can take a beating from the elements without rusting out or short-circuiting. Each fixture consists of a powder coated die cast housing with a formed aluminum lid that can endure greater stress from the elements than fixtures made from inferior metals. Baseball field light fixtures also better protect lamp life with tempered flat glass insulated by a gasket sealed with an aluminum clamp band. Further options become available by adding anodized aluminum reflectors. Not only do these reflectors magnify lumens and photometric distribution, they also allow for field managers to precisely adjust the field of illumination by selecting any specific reflector model from Type 3, 4, 5, or 6 optics that best meets the needs of visibility and safe play. In order to ensure that these lights last not only for the duration of the season, but for many years to come, RLLD equips them with the very best multi-tap ballasts in four optional voltage levels. Superior ballast technology means greater energy efficiency, reliable lighting, and longer lamp life. This ability to match feature to need to create personal benefit unique to a given situation is what RLLD famous as a lighting design, one shop supply house vendor. Small towns throughout America prefer to buy from us because their little league fields in many cases are much smaller than the larger diamonds used by adults. In many cases only a few 400-watt baseball field lighting fixtures is all they need to light the home plate, along with one or two lights equipped with 1000 watt lamps and appropriate reflectors on either side of the baselines. Larger facilities save money with baseball field lights because of their superior electron flow control through the world's best ballast technology. As in the case with smaller fields, there is both a power saving advantage to this and a replacement cost minimizing factor that results as well. The combination of the right fixtures, wattages, optics level reflectors, and mounts can custom-light any baseball field in the world.
