Scoreboard Upgrade Coming To Louisville Slugger Field
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Jan. 12, 2017 – To bring light to more statistics and game-day messages, the Louisville Bats, Triple-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, have turned to Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, for a new scoreboard for right field of Louisville Slugger Field. The installation will take place before the first pitch in 2017.
"This new scoreboard will bring the best premiere graphics and HD content the industry has to offer to Louisville Bats fans," said Vice President of Stadium Operations Scott Shoemaker. "Our fans will be very happy with this new enhancement for their in-game experiences. It is very important to us to create a great atmosphere for the young and old when they are guests here at the ballpark. As we move into the future we want to keep things fresh and up-to-date so that our guests can create memories with their family and friends."
The new scoreboard will measure 30 feet wide by 36 feet high and feature a 15HD pixel layout to provide excellent image clarity and contrast with wide angle visibility for a great view from every seat in the park. It is capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show multiple windows of up-to-the-minute statistics, animations and sponsorship messages.
"We're excited to extend our long-standing partnership with the Louisville Bats as they continue to show their commitment to improving the game-day atmosphere at their ballpark," said Daryl Mihal, Daktronics regional manager. "This scoreboard will bring fans all the statistics they crave during every game this season and for many seasons to come."
Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology offers a long lifetime with consistent, industry-leading performance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
