With a long-term commitment from the University of Vermont in place, the Vermont Lake Monsters (short season A: NY-Penn League) announced the 2012 improvements to Centennial Field.
The most noticeable upgrade: a new 27-foot by 16-foot videoboard and new scoreboard in left field provided by Total Sports Entertainment. The videoboard will give all fans a new game experience with the chance to get up close-and-personal with Lake Monster players through live video, headshots, player information, commercials, in between inning promotions and fan interaction.
Other upgrades to Centennial Field include:
- Each of the eight light towers taken down and replaced by new light towers with new wiring, fixtures and energy efficient lights as part of “Musco Green” technology.
- Visiting teams have a new clubhouse (located underneath the scoreboard) including a coaches office, training room and locker space for all players.
- During the spring of 2011, the Lake Monsters clubhouse in the LaPointe Fieldhouse was renovated with a new lockers, training room, coaches offices and a players lounge.
- Following the 2011 season, the Centennial infield underwent a total renovation including regrading and resurfacing.
In all, the Lake Monsters have spent roughly a million dollars in upgrades and renovations to Centennial Field over the past year.
