- Install a primary scoreboard that is the modern version of the iconic center field scoreboard from old Comiskey- either in straightaway center or if that doesn't work (due to the Fan Deck)- in LF like they have at Comerica Park or Progressive Field.
- Include an area that will be the permanent home for displaying the retired numbers and relocate the "White Sox Hall of Fame/Museum" to this area
Possibly fund it through a naming rights deal- the United Airlines Concourse, etc.
You've read my mind on every point. I have always thought that this is exactly what was needed in the outfield. Could you imagine the 1976 version of the old scoreboard updated to full frameless HD LED board like the Royals?
