A baseball travels at very high speeds inside a batting cage. Players need to see the ball clearly without distracting glare. Creating a uniform field of illumination within the perimeter of the cage is the most important objective in batting cage lighting.
Photometric analysis software has consistently demonstrated that optimal light levels need to be around 50 foot candles.
To achieve the best possible performance, we have configured a four pole kit. Depending on the size and location of the cage, and to some extent, surrounding light levels, mounting heights can vary between 17 feet and 20 feet. Poles are positioned high enough to circumvent ball strikes if the netting of the cage becomes loose over time.
Fixture sizes range between 750W-1000W with LED flood lights. Fixtures are configured with Type II optics. This type of optics has traditionally been used in roadway lighting.

Batting cage lights – LED flood lamp
Baseball can travel up to 100 km/h inside the field. To have a better vision on the fast-moving balls, we need the proper batting cage lighting. Let’s take a look at how can we light up this indoor sports area properly.
Lighting Design for Batting Cage
- Lux Level (Brightness) Requirement
One of the ways to describe the brightness is using the ground lux, which reflect how much light can reach the batting cage turf. The lighting requirement is about 300 to 500 lux generally speaking. This lux level is suitable for training and recreational purpose.
Brightness or Lux Level Required
indoor-batting-cage-should-have-enough-brightness-lux-levelThe ground lux is one of the mechanisms to describe brightness. This is basically a calculation of how much light the batting cage turf would receive. Generally speaking, the lighting requirement is in the range of 300 to 500 lux. This level of brightness is ideal for recreational and training purposes. The number of powers required for this purpose depends on the height of the ceiling and area of the batting cage turf.
The next question is how many powers do I require? It depends on the area and height of the batting cage ceiling. You can enjoy free lighting design service and lighting opinion by approaching to our sales representative. We are eager to solve your enquiry.
- Lighting Uniformity
Apart from providing adequate & appropriate brightness for baseball players, we also need to ensure that the illumination has high enough uniformity.
- High uniformity means that the brightness of each spots on the ground is almost the same. The ways to quantify is to looking at the ratio between minimum lux : average lux or minimum lux : maximum lux. Theoretically the maximum value is 1.
For the recreational indoor softball field and batting cage, having uniformity of 0.5 to 0.6 would be appropriate. Just get in touch with us to acquire much information. Our lighting designer will help.
Advantages of Our LED Sports Lighting Solution
- Super Bright and Energy Saving
batting-cage-led-lightingWe adopt CREE LED chips that illuminate lights 130 lm/W, which is the double of metal halide lamps. Therefore, you can get the same brightness, but using the half of the energy.
To further enhance the lighting performance, our engineers will provide you with DIALux simulation. This is the software predicting the brightness outcome of the luminaries. It is an accurate and convenient measurement because you can know the lux level in each portion of the field in advance. Our engineers are proficient in 3D model construction and thus give you the authentic results.
- Anti-shock Lights for Batting Cage
The caged light fixtures may be susceptible to high impact from the baseball. To handle this issue, we adopt anti-shock lens cover for the luminaries. The light can withstand up to 200 km/h baseball direct hit according to our tests in the laboratory.
YouTubers or Vloggers may wish to capture the exciting moment when they are practicing the baseball skills in your batting cage. If the light is flashing, they would not be able to capture high-quality video, which leads to negative impact when they are trying to promote your venue.
Apart from the user experience, significant flickering affects the safety and irritates the eyes of players. Our luminaries is compatible to 6000 Hz photography. And thus, the LED lights does not strobe even under the 120, 240 or 960 fps camera.
Experienced Manufacturer of Cage Lights
With 10+ years of experience in sports lighting field, we understand the needs, the lighting requirement for the batting cage. We have a wide variety of flood lights with different lumen output, beam angle, anti-glare and anti-flickering system. We have provided luminaires for more than 20 batting cages around the world.
Razorlux batting cage lighting kits ensure that players will be able to see the ball in transit under conditions very similar to those of an actual game. These kits also keep facilities in compliance with many dark sky laws. Fixture housings and pole heights minimize the risk of equipment damage, making the kit a low-maintenance investment that can operate for years without the need for repair or replacement.
