SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Power management company Eaton announced that the home field of the Vanderbilt University men’s baseball team, Hawkins Field in Nashville, Tennessee, has installed an advanced light-emitting diode (LED) system designed to enhance the viewing experiences for spectators while reducing energy use by as much as 75 percent.
The Commodores opened their season under the Ephesus Lighting LED system on February 19 against the University of San Diego and play three more night games this week on March 15 versus Northern Illinois University and March 18 and 19 against Mississippi State University.
“Our new LED lights from Eaton’s Ephesus Lighting make Hawkins Field an even better place to play and watch a game,” said Kevin Colon, associate athletic director, Vanderbilt University. “As we researched the LED lighting options available, it was clear to us that Ephesus Lighting had the best solution from the standpoint of lighting quality, operations flexibility and energy efficiency.”
“Since we installed the first LED lighting system in a North American sports arena, facility operators have come to understand that our digital lighting solutions create an enhanced stage for fans and performers,” said Mike Lorenz, president, Eaton’s Ephesus Lighting business. “Our recent installation at Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers, Hawkins Field at Vanderbilt and others, illustrates that baseball stadium facility operators are clearly seeing the benefits that our digital lighting solution offers them, as well as their fans, players and broadcasters.”
