Byhalia High School lights fields
On the sixth of November, an evening which inclement threatened off and on, head coach Bubba Brown held the ceremonial lighting of the Byhalia Indian baseball facility. The entire sports complex is comprised of the gridiron, baseball and softball facilities.
A good crowd discounted the intermittent showers to witness the historic event.
The project was configured and installed by Cub Davis and associates of D and H Electric. One of the associates with D and H said the ball park clusters in the outfield put out approximately 50 candlepower of luminosity and the ones surrounding the infield pushed about 35-40 candlepower. The configuration allows for consistent and complete lighting with no shadow spots. There are five clusters on the baseball diamond and four for the softball field.
Coach Brown was assisted by board member Terry Rodgers in throwing the symbolic switch.
Jalen Applewhite, a pitcher for the Indians, delivered the first historic pitch under the lights. There was a game after the ceremony which pitted former players against the current Indian team.
Coach Brown invited all the guests to act as officials and call the balls and strikes after he released the umpires earlier because of the weather.
