“For the past three decades, we have been inspired by the commitment of our friends at Musco Lighting and we are grateful for the continuous support they provide to our local leagues around the world as well as the generous donations of modern lighting solutions to enhance the experience of our players,” said Stephen D. Keener, Little League President and CEO. “On behalf of all of us at Little League International, and the millions of children and volunteers we serve, we look forward to continuing this relationship and to the exciting opportunities it will bring to our Little League communities.”
Since 1992, Musco has provided quality lighting systems guaranteed to meet Little League standards for local league fields while reducing energy use and maintenance concerns. Also serving as Little League’s lighting consultant in the area of safety and standards, Musco provides local leagues the technical assistance needed to make sports lighting projects a cost-effective and long-lasting success. To help leagues with this challenge, Musco offers local league volunteers with educational resources such as a free Project Planning Guide, complete with information to help begin planning a lighting project, and also co-sponsors Little League’s A Safety Awareness Program (ASAP).
“This partnership has been a big part of Musco’s history and is a point of pride for our entire team,” said Jeff Rogers, President of Musco. “We believe strongly in Little League’s mission of teaching important life lessons and fostering personal growth through youth baseball and softball, and we’re excited to continue being a part of that mission.”
In addition to their local league support, Musco has provided lighting solutions at all five U.S. Region complexes that are used for the Little League Baseball and Softball Region Tournaments each summer and assisted with lighting solutions at the Little League Softball World Series in Greenville, North Carolina, since its move there in 2020. Leading into the 2022 Little League Baseball World Series, Musco also worked with Little League to retrofit the stadium lighting at iconic Howard J. Lamade Stadium to be able to produce light levels that meet both Little League and broadcast standards while minimizing glare. In addition, BallTracker® fixtures light the underside of the aerial baseball to help players follow its path with better contrast against the dark sky.
