Memphis, Buffalo outsize new Biscuits scoreboard

Here are some other tidbits on the new Riverwalk scoreboard-to-be, after you read the story in today's paper, of course ...

a The new video board, at 1,080 square feet, may be the biggest in the Southern League, but it's far from the biggest in the minors. The Buffalo Bisons currently hold that designation with one that went in last year and goes 2,640 square feet. The Memphis Redbirds are taking this arms race up a notch this year at 3,600.

a The video board will have a line score, speed pitch and time of day functions that, of course, can be removed for some between-innings entertainment.

a Where the team had two cameras (and often one last year), it will now have four with one unmanned camera in center field and one wireless camera. The wireless means they'll be better able to feature fans in the stands.

a The new one will be able to easily provide updated statistics, another issue that troubled the old one.

Are the changing the location of the scoreboard so that people along the 3rd baseline can see it while still watching the game ? That was the only flaw of the stadium that I have experienced in my 6 trips to the stadium.

Yea fair-play could have saved them biscuits $300,000 dollars on that project! i spoke to the fair-play rep, he worked the #'s off of that system. He also said that he was never put on the bid list for that project! funny that is the same thing daktornics tried to do at our school on the video replay scoreboard we did. Fair-play saved us $120,000 dollars on our's. Good luck with the crappy service. cause daktronics did not service us well!!!
