Ballpark lighting has been known for its harshness, and many players and spectators alike have found themselves uncomfortable after the sun sets as they deal with harsh, glaring light. This can make seeing the ball difficult when it is in play, leading to errors and missteps on the field and a poor experience for spectators. The right LED lighting can help change this experience, making after-dark play just as enjoyable as playing in broad daylight. AEON LED Luminaires offer an efficient lighting option that is easy on the eyes, and this can make your ball park experience better for everyone.
The Importance of Lighting to the Game of Baseball
Baseball fields have a unique need for proper lighting that other facilities may not face. In a ballpark, players and spectators alike must follow a small, white ball, which can be hard to see well after dark. Lighting that is too dim or creates too much glare can greatly impact the quality of the viewing experience and the safety of the players. That is why proper illumination is so important.
AEON LED Luminaires offer bright, effective lighting that works well in ballparks. These luminaires offer a high color rendering index, providing light that is close to natural sunlight. They are also glare-free, so you never have to worry about losing the ball in the glare from the lights. This makes them ideal lighting solutions for ballparks of all sizes.
Choosing the Right Lighting for a Ball Park
So which AEON LED product is the right one for your ballpark? The answer depends on what class of play your field is. According to IES, if you are lighting a professional level ballpark, you will need 150 foot-candles of light for the infield and 100 foot-candles for the outfield. For smaller fields, you can get by with smaller lighting. For recreational ball fields, the infield foot candles need to be 30 and the outfield food candles need to be 20. At the collegiate level, if the games are televised, aim for 100-foot candles for the infield and 70 for the outfield.
As you can see, it can take quite a bit of light to illuminate a ball field properly. That’s where AEON LED Luminaires can help. With an efficacy of 140 Lumens/Watt Delivered, these are bright lights that will illuminate the playing field well while using the least amount of energy.
