Las Vegas Ballpark to have largest videoboard in minors

Updated February 4, 2019 - 11:59 am

Las Vegas Ballpark will have the biggest videoboard in minor league baseball — and bigger than those at stadiums of five Major League Baseball teams — the Aviators announced Monday.

The videoboard measures 31 feet high by 126 feet wide. That’s bigger than the displays at Baltimore’s Camden Yards, Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, Pittsburgh’s PNC Park, Tampa Bay’s Tropicana Field and Toronto’s Rogers Centre,

The stadium, which is being built at Downtown Summerlin, is scheduled to open April 9 for the Aviators’ home opener against the Sacramento River Cats.

The 3,930-square-foot videoboard is being built with Daktronics and will feature a unique angle to match the contour of the outfield wall. The display will have the capability to show one large image or be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of videos, photos or statistics.

The Ballpark also will feature a a gate entry video display measuring 3.5 feet high by 41 feet wide at the main stadium entrance.
