"The lights have not been changed in 60 years".......What?...a Justin quote.
The original lights were on about 100' high (or higher) poles. There was probably 10 or so lights on each pole similar to the old football field lights that used to exist at the high school stadiums.You could see them from many miles away at night. I am not sure when they changed them......but I am speculating in the 1980's(????). Maybe they used the same lights from 1939???
The infield used to be dark at night with minimal lighting received from the track lights.. When they changed the lights the FIRST time, the infield lighting became what it is as of today.
