Default New Lights at the Ballpark?

Was riding by Guaranteed Rate Field today and noticed the lights were on. Also noticed that each bank of lights had the bottom two rows of lights missing. It also appears that they may have switched to LED lights.

They also had the lights on during the day last week as well. Maybe they are testing new lights.

Thought it was odd to have lights on with nothing taking place at GRF.

Every year around this time I see the lights on day and night. I guess they are for the Field of Dreams team.....

Someone posted on the Facebook group IIRC that they were switching to LED lighting. There was a picture taken from the light tower.

There you go. I do have to admit though it is kind of cool to see some kind of activity around the ballpark when driving home from work during the holiday season.

Makes me think about baseball even more.

Iíve thought for a couple of years the Sox should switch to LED lighting. They do cool stuff with them in other stadiums at celebratory moments. Iíll be happy if this is whatís going on.
