City leaders in Daphne, Alabama, had been planning and preparing for 20 years to add high-quality lighting to the baseball fields at Daphne Sports Complex as well as the tennis courts at W.O. Lott Park. With both parks being owned by the city, officials wanted to ensure the best possible lighting for community members with an LED system that would create superior visibility, be easy to operate, and prevent glare and spill light from affecting neighbors and drivers on nearby roads.
The city conducted extensive research into lighting options from various manufacturers, and ultimately chose to partner with Musco—which it had worked with before—and have Total Light Control—TLC for LED™ systems installed at both facilities. Playability is enhanced with the system’s ability to direct more uniform light onto the fields and courts and, as a result of the patented light control technology, light is contained within the facilities. Daphne also gained Musco’s Control‑Link® controls and monitoring system, allowing the lights to be managed from anywhere, instantly, with the touch of a smartphone.
