The Red Sox announced their latest — and I believe last — round of improvements to Fenway Park. I’ve not been there, but I’m told that it’s been a pretty good project, overall. The park is getting nice upgrades. It’s a lot nicer and cleaner and more fan friendly than it used to be. But hey, you gotta pay for that somehow, right?
Three new High Definition video display and scoring systems will be installed this off-season at Fenway Park and will represent a significant upgrade over the existing scoreboards. The Red Sox selected ANC Sports to install three new state-of-the-art Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision light emitting diode (LED) video screens.
The largest of the three screens, measuring approximately 38 feet high by 100 feet wide, will be the main video board in center field and replace the existing elements of the structure above the bleachers in center field, which was originally constructed prior to the 1976 season.
Since they never show the replays you really want to see on those big boards (i.e. the disputed calls) they’re mostly for advertising. Such is the way of the world.
