Home to the State College Spikes and Penn State University baseball teams, Medlar Field at Lubrano Park was ready for a facelift.  In addition to the new natural grass, renovated dugouts, and new scoreboard, the organizations made the decision to upgrade the field’s sports lights to all LED as part of a long-term maintenance program.

I&Y Construction stepped in to spearhead the three-tower, four-pole retrofit.  I&Y implemented a plan to tackle replacing 188 metal halide fixtures with (a more efficient) Musco TLC for LED 128 fixture design on the facilities existing structures.  In addition to the light fixtures, I&Y Construction installed Musco’s Ball Tracker technology and Showlight system.

BallTracker fixtures light the underside of the aerial baseball to help players follow it’s path with better contrast against the dark sky.

Showlight with changing RGB fixtures allows the staff to wash the stadium in different colors in a spectacular display for fans and players alike.

Sports Journalist for the University, Surya Maddali said it best, “The lighting seems to be the most meaningful change, as it will significantly improve the lumination level for night events.  I think the existing lighting is underwhelming at times, and it has not been bright enough for the night games.  The renovation is a welcomed one for me, and it will benefit players, fans, and media alike.”

I&Y Construction took to the field for the project December 4th 2023.  Lights were operational for the March 14th Home Opener game.

I&Y Construction is always honored to be a part of these projects.  Bringing universities, parks, sports clubs and school districts to a new playing level; not only for their athletes but for the their families, fans, and entire communities.
