The Bowling Green Hot Rods introduced one of the most impressive aspects of Bowling Green Ballpark. Installation has been completed on the video board and digital scoreboard.
"Any fan that comes into Bowling Green Ballpark is going to be blown away by the new video board," said Hot Rods General Manager and CEO Brad Taylor. "From its size to all the information it will display, we are thrilled to be able to provide our fans with a first-class structure."
The centerpiece of the new structure is the gigantic video screen, measuring 16-feet tall and 32-feet wide. The screen is capable of displaying high-definition video and will be used in a variety of ways. Fans will be able to follow on-field promotions, see the latest player statistics, and have their name recognized during special events and birthday parties.
In addition to the video screen, the structure will have a fully digital scoreboard, displaying all the pertinent scoring information from runs and hits to balls and strikes. On the left side of the scoreboard fans will track the speed of each pitch on the MPH Indicator, while the right side of the score line features a digital clock.
The entire video board structure was manufactured and installed by Daktronics, one of the premier purveyors of LED displays and sound systems for athletics facilities around the world. Opening Night presented by Citizens First is April 17th at 7:05 p.m. against the Kannapolis Intimidators (Chicago White Sox). For a limited time, fans wanting to attend Opening Night may purchase individual tickets to the Home Run Grill, featuring a 90-minute All-You-Can-Eat Buffet, for just $21.
