Huge Coors Field scoreboard — eight,369 square feet — unveiled by Rockies

The Rockies are building a scoreboard to match the mountains.

On Wednesday, the club provided a sneak peek of its huge new video scoreboard being constructed in left-center at Coors Field. The massive new scoreboard will measure 8,369 square feet — 258 percent larger than the board it’s replacing.

The new addition to Coors Field is not just the Mount Elbert of scoreboards, it will also feature the shape of a mountain cutout, reminiscent of the club’s Colorado mountains logo.

According to the Rockies, Daktronics, the industry leader in large-format LED video displays, is creating a display that is the equivalent of 784 60-inch televisions, and will feature 6.8 million LEDs (light-emitting diodes).

The Rockies will officially unveil the scoreboard on the home-opener on April 6 when the Rockies host the Atlanta Braves.

The ballclub, embarking on its 25th anniversary season in 2018, is also making other improvements to Coors Field. New “ribbon scoreboards” have already been installed on the facades around the ballpark, and an improved sound system is on the way, too.
