I don't think i'd change the scoreboard. It's a simple one, becuase there's a lot of things in that area to keep your attention, between the billboards and the other scoreboards in the area. At a park like the Cell, the scoreboard shouldn't be the main and only focus. If we changed it we'd turn into every other baseball stadium that has a central scoreboard in LF and nothing else. US Cellular Field is the most unique looking stadium in baseball, i'd like to keep it like that.

That would be awesome!

I know there were rumors that there were plans for something like that, some pictures even leaked out showing a rendition of it. Too bad it didnt happen.

Yeah, I actually emailed Brooks on those BPSB tables (and those weird blue folding chairs behing home plate), but he said they weren't planning on changing them.

I finally see the scoreboard as a disappointment, as I noticed this last time at the park, there is a TON of dead space up there that could be used. When that board was built, it probably was state of the art, but all these newer parks can use the Hi-def technology to make their boards stand out.

I wouldn't mind the board being updated.

As far as the "Home Run" porch, they've already considered it and rejected it. The construction and having to re-do that whole side of the park is cost prohibitive. Considering that only a handful of homeruns have ever reached the Fundamentals deck, a right field "home run" porch would have to come down over the current concourse seats to ever have a chance at some upper deck home runs.

As far as making the windows green by just filming them; you do realize that folks will just pick and peel at it until it looks crappy, right?

The windows are up a little high to be doing that. Are you planning on bringing a ladder to the games?

When a saw a photo of old Comiskey on the upper deck collage last weekend I noticed the renovation of the upper deck looks alot like old comiskey did.

Has anyone noticed this before, I haven't seen that pointed out yet (even with a extensive forum search) or am I just seeing things?

I'm fine with the stadium as it is right now, nothing other than small aesthetic changes needed.

Holy Crap! You're right! It'd be funny if this were just a coincidence.

So just the upper windows, not windows like in the Majestic T-shirt shop, BPSP, etc?

If that's what you're talking about, maybe it would be cool.

The windows on the outside inside the arches, I believe.

I think the deck in RF would be cool if it was somethin akin to the fundamentals deck, but it would be just a viewing point maybe with a specialty food area. It would not actually increase seating and would not be a 'hr porch'.

Id also knock out the 2 billboards closest to the scoreboard, update/expand the scoreboard, and place the ads that were on those billboards prominently on the new scoreboard.

Default KC scoreboard

The new Royals scoreboard is amazing. HD and there's so much info up there it took a while to find everything.

Granted I had a few pops and some some licorice whip, but the HD screen of replays looked better than real life.

The also have a video board on the LF fence like Toronto -- which I thought was a bit of overkill.

The only thing I wish they'd do is take down the billboards.

The big windows on the outside of the stadium.
