This page will introduce how to design the best solution for baseball stadium step by step, even if your customers don’t know anything and you can show them everything by reading this article.
What Are the Dimensions of a Baseball Field?
Baseball is a unique game as the field sizes vary and this wholly depends on the level of play. For instance, a little league baseball field has smaller dimensions. The dimensions keep on increasing in size as the level of play increases. The biggest determining factor of how much light will be required is the size of the field.
How do you layout a baseball field?
Step 1: Triangulate the Backstop. If there is no backstop, position the apex of home plate in an appropriate spot.
Step 2: Locate Second Base.
Step 4: Set Home Plate.
Step 3: Locate First Base and Third Base.
Step 5: Set Pitching Rubber.
Baseball fields have different requirements. A small league game does not require as much light as the World Series. Sticking to the recommended foot candles is very important, because if you decide to focus on reducing costs, it may result in very poor lighting.
Baseball fields generally require higher levels of lighting than other sports activities because game objects are small and move quickly. When it comes to sports lighting, the movement of small and fast-moving objects must be strongly illuminated compared to those of larger and close-to-ground moving objects (such as football).
In a baseball game, make sure that the light pole is not located in the pitching, hitting, and catching movement of the player’s video.

Many buyers now have doubts about Made in China products. In fact, many Made in China products have strict product quality certification systems and factory manufacturing standard systems now. Due to foreign labor, high material costs and high factory rents, local LEDs business tend to be imported. The Made in China is the best choice because of its price advantage and quality assurance. So how to save money? Find a factory with guaranteed quality and complete and reliable certificates. This can save you 3 times or more money than you buy locally. For instance, the total lamp cost of a standard baseball field is approx. $120,000 to $200,000 if you purchase from US or European, but the price is just around $40,000 to $90,000 in China.
a.Saving Energy 70% or more
b.Longer lifespan to 10-40 years.
c.Better lighting effect on the baseball field and for players.
The concept is simple. The more professional the baseball game, the higher the lighting cost of the baseball field. There are different baseball competition standards like collegiate, high school, little league, recreational, international league, minor league, battleship, or MLB game levels.
For example, if your high school baseball diamond is designed for training or entertainment purposes, the baseball diamond’s lighting cost (LED) is approximately $30,000 to $60,000. Conversely, if an international league is held at a baseball stadium, such as a minor league, battleship, or MLB baseball tournament, the total light leds cost will increase from $80,000 to $150,000.

Two key points is basic for baseball field lights design & baseball field construction cost. One is the baseball game levels and another is the budgets of contractor. MECREE have different models based on your requirements and budget.
GL-SPL is designed for large stadium and professional baseball matches especially for professional league such MLB or TV broadcasting. Why the cost of professional field is higher? Because for such the professional MLB baseball tournament, we will need more LED flood lights to boost the horizontal and vertical brightness for 4K & 8K TV broadcasting requirements. Regarding to the lumen output, we will also need to maintain a relatively high lighting uniformity for baseball diamond. So, the lighting design is more complex, thus the lamp cost will be higher. In the meantime, it will require professional lighting curve for baseball lighting.
GL-FL is our classical model we have sales for longer to 10years and favored by European and American customers. We have used that model to win the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup, National Cricket Filed is SA, African World Championships.
It is high-quality LED Stadium lights and tested well by the market. Whole design is much different from the common LED lights on the market. Modular and unitized design is core technology of the models. It will achieve high uniformity lights on your baseball stadium.
GL-SFL aim to design high output& brightness LED Sport lights. Twice or more times brightness compared with other typical LED floodlights. 1pcs GL-SFL 1000W=1pcs Traditional MH 2000W, 1pcs GL-SFL 1000W=2pcs typical 1000w LED Floodlights. It mean you will use less led stadium lights to achieve same lighting brightness. Thus more energy saving and save total cost. It will be good choice for training or entertainment like like collegiate, high school, little league baseball field.
When know the details of your baseball field. Let’s start design your baseball lighting field project. Each field requires custom solutions depending on its location, size, and level of play. MECREE Lighting specialists use experiential knowledge and photometric analyses to come up with different lighting solutions for different baseball fields.
First of all, you need to consider the height of the lighting poles. The height of the lighting fixtures is crucial for illumination of the whole baseball stadium. The design must ensure the lighting pole should be positioned in a way that the glare does not directly enter the player’s eyes.
The installation height of baseball stadium lighting fixtures is an important issue in the design of sports lighting. It should be placed in an appropriate position to avoid glare for player on the baseball sports field.
In the baseball field, due to the characteristics of the game, most of the sights of athletes, spectators and cameras are in sight. Lighting design must consider the parts.
For international baseball competitions, the lighting aim design should match the uniformity of the stadium and must be in accordance with the shadows of the players. It should be installed in a position that doesn’t affect the spectators and player.
In addition, it must be divided into outfield and infield about the horizontal surface illumination of the baseball field design. You also need to take the vertical surface of illumination into consideration. Because the balls in the baseball fields often go high in the stadium.
The baseball match is one of the high-speed sports and also one of the most popular and watched sports. So most match will require the TV broadcast. When we design the baseball stadium lights, we need take the position of the camera into consideration. Make sure the broadcast camera is with a clear view of the game and pre-review each camera location to finalize the design so that the same light is gathered.
What is the main points for baseball field lighting design?
(1) The size of the baseball is small, the movement speed is fast, and the trajectory changes are difficult to capture, so sufficient horizontal illumination and vertical illumination of a certain height range are required.
(2) To meet the illumination requirements of the infield and outfield of the baseball field, it is consistent with the uniformity and gradient relationship.
(3) According to the site environment, determine the number of poles, the height of the poles and the type of lamps, the beam width and the number of lamps.
Except for LED Floodlight& LED sport stadium lights, we also can provide one-step service including cables, switches, power distribution cabinet and other parts.
Obviously, the high mast will be one of the important points for baseball field construction. Replacing high masts is not just replace a pole, we should consider many factors including the total weight of football stadium lights, the maximal wind speed，topography, and whether it is near the sea etc.
Combining these factors and the local environment situation, Mecree will perform the special design by a series of professional calculations, all calculations will be shown in “calculation books”.
If you want know more about the high mast service, MECREE also will provide the most professional high mast solution.
