The Sugar Land Skeeters (independent; Atlantic League) will install a new LED videoboard at Constellation Field, marking a notable upgrade for the 2020 season. The Skeeters will also be installing a new ribbon video board in left field.
The new center-field display, which will be in the same location as the previous videoboard, features a 17 percent increase in resolution over the previous display. It will measure approximately 25 feet high by 57.5 feet wide and will feature a 15HD pixel layout. With the addition of both new videoboards, the Constellation Field outfield will now contain 1,542 square feet of digital real estate.
“The new video board builds upon the gold standard we’ve set for fan experience. It’s size and state-of-the-art technology place us amongst the best in minor league baseball,” said Skeeters Owner Kevin Zlotnik. “Our fans are first-class and they deserve a first-class video board experience every time they come to watch Skeeters baseball at Constellation Field.”
The new outfield videoboards will be provided to the Skeeters by Daktronics. The installation of the video boards is expected to be completed by mid-April, in time for the Skeeters’ 2020 Opening Day on April 30.
The left-field ribbon display will be installed above the manual scoreboard at Constellation Field. It will measure approximately 3.5 feet high by 33.5 feet long and will feature a 15HD pixel layout. This display can show complementary information to the main display as well as providing the opportunity to highlight sponsors throughout events.
“This video board upgrade is going to improve the fan experience at Constellation Field,” said Brandon DeSmet, Daktronics sales representative. “It was great to work with their entire team on this project and we’re looking forward to providing the excellent level of service and support that Daktronics is known for to this great organization. It will be exciting to see the final installation making an impact for the 2020 season.”
