Oklahoma Baptist University baseball hits prime time next spring with the addition of lighting for Bison Field at Ford Park.
The new lights were turned on Tuesday afternoon, June 24, and will remain on continuously for three to four days to allow the system to "burn in."
The Bison will schedule several home dates for night baseball next spring, though many daytime dates are probable early in the season.
Several universities in the Sooner Athletic Conference have added lights to their ballparks, allowing for increased fan support while also permitting student athletes to attend more afternoon classes.
