DETROIT - Just in time for opening day at Comerica Park, the stadium is installing a new scoreboard.
According to Detroit.Tigers.MLB.com the scoreboard will feature 6,000 square feet of high-definition video and graphics, is poised to become the fourth-biggest video board in Major League Baseball.
The smaller board hanging below the main board, where pitch counts and radar-gun readings appear, will also be replaced. The new version will be twice as long, allowing for more information. Add in new boards along the club level where the line score usually appears, and all the boards in the park will be LED.
Because of the project, the Tigers had to cancel their annual FanFest event in January out of safety concerns around the ballpark.
The new scoreboard will be unveiled at the ballpark April 5.
