But your problem may be different:
-> Be careful with gym arc light since they cycle on/off with the AC duty cycle and if you are (i.e. shutter speed) at same frequency you could be catching the ligths at the wrong time!
Yes - there is a good chance you might not have enough overlapping 'field of light' (for lack of a better term). When you have enough lights, the fact that they all cycle and cycle differently has little effect because one light is only a small part of the whole. But, when the lights are spread apart and you take a burst you may see the first shot exposed correctly and subsequent shots varying. The color temperature (which affects WB) may also fluctuate.

NHL, JohnG et al--
Thanks for the insight. I shot the following night at a different field under different lights and did notsee the problem. Apparently it was related to the lights at that one field.
