One baseball field in eastern Iowa has a new addition that many players are looking forward to.

The baseball field in Norway is one of the first in the area to get LED lights.

Officials had a contractor install LED lights at the field on Friday. They say the lights will create a better overall baseball experience, and it will keep the players safer.

"We been looking to put lights in for quite awhile. Because we had over 35 percent of our lighting either burned out, or busted off from wind storms and things of that nature," said James Van Scoyoc of Norway Baseball Association.

Officials will test out the lights on Tuesday. If all goes well, they will make their debut Wednesday night.
