In this era, high-powered lights and especially LEDs have made something impossible to be possible. And that is night golf and baseball tournaments. A few decades back no one could ever think of such a thing. And now, night golf and baseball tournaments are common.
Golf requires a large area for a tournament which is much bigger than that required by other sports. A golf course is at least 150 to 200 acres of land. And you can imagine how much can lighting that entire area would cost. And the main drawback was that the lighting could be made by only some of the golfers who would later take that as an advantage. But used of LED lights as golf course lights has made night golf possible and much more economical.
Efficient lighting engineers have made it possible to fix the LED lights in such a way such that there is no glare and the shadows are minimized. Glare in a golf course would definitely affect the shot of a golfer. LED golf course lights that have made night golf possible have really increased the number of golfers as before many of them could not play in daytime or some of them prefer cooler hours to play golf and avoid sunlight. LED lighting also has the advantage of providing the maximum illumination as soon as it is switched on. It does not take any extra time to gain the maximum illumination.
The baseball lighting is also nothing different from other form of sports. But now lighting has enabled baseball to be played at night too. Any good stadium should have the proper arrangement of the lights. Imagine you have purchased a baseball match ticket and you went to the stadium to only find that you cannot even identify the face of your favorite player just because of the lack of a proper lighting system? It is equally frustrating for the players if they do no not have a proper visual satisfaction. Proper lighting of the stadiums is of utmost importance. And for this the LED lights have come as a boon to all. Their cost-effectiveness and a much greater quality have enabled many stadiums around the world to afford such lighting. The baseball lights should be such that the player never has to face any problem regarding hitting the ball or catching it because of the glare of the lights. Neither should the spectators have any problem because of the glare. Moreover the fixtures should be properly aligned so that they do not direct the light in the face of the players. The entire field should be properly and uniformly illuminated. It should not be such that one place is in darkness and the other has received too much light. The LED baseball lights also require much less maintenance than the conventional ones. They also consume much less power thus cutting down the cost. It is only because of these economical and high power LED lights that night baseball is possible today.
