Somerset Patriots fans will see games in a light this season. According to a press release issued by the New York Yankees Double-A affiliate, the Patriots are installing a new scoreboard consisting of three Daktronics LED video displays to entertain fans at TD Bank Ballpark beginning in 2023.
The unique configuration of displays features a top, middle and bottom layout totaling 1,620 square feet to bring life to baseball games and other events held at the ballpark.
“We have been eyeing the right time and have discussed a new scoreboard over the past few seasons,” said Patriots Co-Chairman Jonathan Kalafer. “Our fans deserve the best, and as we look to enhance their enjoyment and overall entertainment at our games, it made a lot of sense to invest in a new scoreboard that will rival some of the top ones used throughout MLB and MiLB.”
From the top down, the displays measure 6-feet high by 15.5-feet wide, 8.5-feet high by 36-feet wide and 20.5-feet high by 60-feet wide. All feature 15HD pixel layouts with wide-angle visibility to appeal to the entire ballpark. These displays can work together as one large canvas or as individual displays to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics, animations and sponsorship messages.
This will be the third scoreboard in the team’s 25-year history and first since 2008.
