CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Indians will debut a new scoreboard at Progressive Field next season, the team announced on Monday.
The high-definition board will measure 59 feet by 221 feet, and replace the current system, which was installed in 2004.
“The new boards will significantly enhance our fans’ experience at Progressive Field,” said Neil Weiss, the Indians Senior Vice President of Technology and Chief Information Officer, in a news release on Monday. “This project increases our ability to deliver a world-class in game experience, delivering stats, highlights and player profiles in large, high-definition formats.”
The new scoreboard is part the second phase of Progressive Field renovations, including a club with a full bar behind home plate and new concession options featuring local fare.
During the first phase, the Cleveland Indians remodeled the bullpens, built a new bar called The Corner, and brought in area restaurants Barrio, Melt and Sweet Moses.
