Default New Outside Video Board

Not sure if this has been brought up, I just noticed the Video Board (the one visible from 94) is new. It's larger and has new pinwheels on top. Looks nice.

How are the pin wheels different? What else did they do to the board?

I'm not sure they changed the pinwheels. They basically gutted the whole sign and replaced both the screen and the ad panels above and below the old screen with one big screen. As most of these new displays are, it's obnoxiously bright and not all that much clearer. For me I still miss just having a large permanent sign somewhere that simply says "next home series" giving the team and dates.

I happened to drive by when they were installing it. I think it could be clearer or brighter. Other than that, it's nothing major.

I have not noticed any other work on the stadium either.

Wow, I hadnt noticed that. Well I don't drive past there all that often but I'm sure I drove past a few times last month and never noticed it.

This may be the first year in a decade that there wont be any work on the park.

Maybe.. just maybe. This will finally be the year they peel off those awful fading pinwheel stickers from the club level that have been there since 2003. It's ridiculious that they're still there!

Sounds like a perfect question for Sox Fest this weekend.

There was a mention of this in a thread a couple of months ago when they were installing it.
