A major-league scoreboard--a brand new Daktronics display--is coming to the home of the Washington Nationals' Class A farm team, the Potomac Nationals.
Here's a computer rendering of the scoreboard, to be installed by opening day, April 8.
The 13.4-by-35-foot scoreboard in left-center field of G Richard Pfitzner Stadium ("The Pfitz") will include a digital LED line score section with a fully animated 4-by-35-foot LED message display below.
"The addition of the new scoreboard will enhance the fan experience in a big way, and not just from a baseball standpoint," Potomac Nationals Vice President/General Manager Jonathan Griffith said.
The new board also comes with new DakStats software that will track in-game stats and play-by-play action.
With the new video display, the P-Nats will have the ability to broadcast in-game promotions, crowd shots, instant replays and even movies. Among the bonuses for 2010: Every Friday night game will be followed by a movie.
