Some fluorescent lights flicker at the electrical power frequency (50 or 60 hz). A short exposure can catch the lights at a dim or bright part of the cycle and produce weird colors and horrible unusable lighting.
By using a shutter speed of 1/60 or slightly less, you can avoid having to deal with this. It just depends on the type of light fixtures and ballasts used.
If you are using 1/250 sec, review several test images to make sure that you are not seeing this happen.
I have a local high school football field that does that. At least it did a couple of years ago when I was still deluding myself there was any money in youth sports photography.
A sequence at 1/500th or so would shift from a reddish-orange to green cast, even though I had set a white balance. Even the exposure seemed to fluctuate from normal to about a stop under. Kind of a nightmare for color correction. And while I'm sure theres a strong possibility that shooting at 1/60 or slower would fix the color issue, that's not really an option with football.
