Old College Field - Secchia Stadium and McLane Stadium - install field lighting

Project phase: Archived

Project background

  • MSU is the only Big Ten school without field lighting at its softball and baseball stadiums.
  • Installation of the field lighting component will complete the sports complex's master plan.
  • The lighting system will improve scheduling of games around weather challenges and TV broadcast availability, and the safety and security of the complex.

Project Scope

  • Installation of new LED field lighting at Secchia Stadium (softball) and McLane Stadium (baseball).
  • The lighting system will provide 100 foot-candles in the infield, and 70 foot-candles in the outfield at both stadiums.
  • Minimal lighting controls for the field lighting system will be provided at the complex’s existing central location.
  • The use of LED lighting fixtures will result in a 50-percent energy savings when compared to a traditional field lighting fixture.


  • Construction start: Dec 2018
  • Ready for use: March 2019


  • $2.1 - $2.5 million
