The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (independent; American Association) will have a major change to Newman Outdoor Field for 2012: a new videoboard.
“We couldn’t be more excited to give this video board to our fans,” said RedHawks Owner & President Bruce Thom. “We are entering our 17th season and we want to continue to make the stadium a fun, safe, family-friendly place to enjoy a ballgame. This upgrade will immediately enhance the overall game experience for our fans and sponsors.”
The RedHawks purchased the board from Daktronics, with the consulting assistance of Total Sports Entertainment. It includes a 15mm light emitting diode (LED) display, which is a member of the latest generation of Daktronics’ outdoor video display products, The bad news: an electronic scoreboard will replace the current manual scoreboard.
“This is an exciting time for RedHawks baseball,” said Thom. “The old scoreboard has served us well and tallied a lot of victories, but it’s outlived its useful lifespan. This new board positions the organization for future success while making the game experience more vibrant.”
