Giants plan to expand outfield scoreboard into ‘best in baseball’ [report]


The Giants haven’t taken action in revamping their roster this offseason just yet, but as far as their scoreboard, that’s coming along.

According to NBC Sports Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic, the Giants plan to enlarge the current scoreboard beyond the outfield in AT&T Park by twice the current size. Pavlovic equated the size of the future scoreboard to the one in Dallas’ AT&T Stadium, which is well known for its imposing size that stretches the majority of the football field. That scoreboard measures 29 feet high by 51 feet wide.

The plan is for the Giants’ scoreboard to appeal to all audiences. Advanced metrics, including launch angle and exit velocity, according to Pavlovic, will be projected prominently.

“We’re going to have the best scoreboard in baseball, we believe,” Larry Baer told Pavlovic. “It’s going to be the first 4K scoreboard (in baseball). We’re going to be able to show information and entertaining features that we’ve never been able to show before just because of the capacity.”
