New Video Board Construction Underway


Today Daktronics will begin its destruction of our old video board to make way for our new 60×60 HD video board.

The new video board will weigh in at over 20 tons and at 3,600 square feet will be the largest video board in all of Minor League Baseball. Generating 1,440,000 pixels, it will use a fraction of the power of the old board, making it more environmentally friendly.

Here is a tentative schedule of the entire process (dates subject to change):

  • Monday, March 5 to Friday, March 16: Demolish the existing display.
  • Monday, March 19 to Friday March 30: Install catwalks and back of display.
  • Tuesday, March 20 to Monday, March 26: Installation of display.
  • Monday, March 19 to Friday, April 6: Electrical power to the display.
  • Monday, March 26 to Friday, March 30: Pull signal cable.
  • Monday, March 19 to Friday, April 6: Installation of the front end control system.
  • Monday, April 2 to Tuesday, April 3: Terminate signal cable.
  • Wednesday, April 4 to Friday, April 6: Test displays.
  • Monday, April 9 to Wednesday, April 11: Complete operator and maintenance training.
  • Thursday, April 12: Displays are complete.

Updates and photos will be provided throughout the entire construction process.
