Orioles Park at Camden Yards to See Renovations for 20th Anniversary PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maury Brown

Camden Yards

It doesn't seem possible, but 2011 will mark the Orioles 20th season at Camden Yards. While the team has been horrible on the field (13 consecutive losing seasons dating back to 1997), Oriole Park at Camden Yards has been, from the beginning, a winner.

With low attendance marking the time with the poor play, along with the 20th anniversary, the Orioles announced on Tuesday that OPACY is undergoing renovations to the seating bowl designed to keep the facility competitive.

Currently the Maryland Stadium Authority is currently completing the final phase of the replacement of the seats in the Oriole Park seating bowl as part of their deferred maintenance program. Last off-season, all seats in the lower level from foul pole to foul pole were replaced, along with necessary repairs to the concrete in this area. The work concludes this off-season, as MSA repairs concrete and replaces seats in the lower level outfield, the club level and the upper deck.

At the request of the Orioles the club level and upper deck at Camden Yards will be furnished with wider seats that will be more comfortable for fans. In addition, sightlines for fans on both of those levels will be improved, as new, less intrusive railings will be installed, enhancing the view of those sitting in the first few rows of both levels, as well as fans sitting in and around upper deck equal access and companion seats.

Those changes will lower seating capacity at Camden Yards from the current 48,290 to 45,971, a decrease of 2,319 seats. The decrease should not be felt, at least until the Orioles get back to their winning ways and begin drawing large crowds again. According to Eric Fisher of the SportsBusiness Journal, there has only been 26 times over the last 5 season that the new seating capacity that the ballpark will see has been surpassed.

Recently opened ballparks such as Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia (43,651); Citi Field in New York (41,800); Nationals Park in Washington, DC (41,546); Petco Park in San Diego (42,691); and Minnesota’s Target Field (39,504) all have capacities smaller than Oriole Park.

Other improvements to the ballpark include the installation of drink rails in portions of the club level seating bowl down the left field and right field lines, as well as the addition of bistro tables facing the field on the left field club level, thus creating a “viewing deck”. Both locations are ideal for individuals as well as small and large groups.

These changes are expected to be approved by the Board of Public Works on November 17.

Red Sox Adding New Video Boards in Year X Fenway Park Improvements PDF Print E-mail

Old Fenway Displays

New Fenway
1 to 3. Fenway Park will see continued improvements with upgrades for video
display including increased size for the main display, and the addition of two
smaller displays to its left and right

The dreamers of Yawkey Way are at it again, imagining more features for the oldest ballpark in the game. The Red Sox yesterday announced the final round of major offseason improvements closing a ten year loop of annual upgrades designed to keep the Red Sox in Fenway into the middle of the 21st century.

“This is the last year of a ten-year series of improvements to Fenway Park that has given this venerable old ballpark new life,” said Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino.

Most prominent of the Year X augmentations is the installation of a trio of gigantic video boards that will tower over the center and right field bleachers. Following the lead of the minor league affiliate in Pawtucket, the big club in Beantown turns to high definition video as a means of enhancing the fans experience at the ballpark.

Video boards have provided in-game replays for many years, but never with the clarity of picture that modern screens can provide, effectively creating a high def television with more square footage than an average one bedroom apartment.

Additionally, Fenway's new video boards create opportunities for revenue streams through digital signage advertising opportunities. In the artist's renderings of the new video boards, the generic "SPONSOR" above the board over the right field bleachers stands out as a promotional place awaiting someone's marketing budget. In addition the new main video screen above the centerfield bleachers will be able to mimic the look of the old rotational sponsor signs.

The main board will measure approximately 38 feet high by 100 feet wide and will replace the existing elements of the structure above the bleachers in centerfield which saw 35 seasons of action. The board will display full-screen live video, game action accompanied by real-time statistics, sponsor graphics partnered with the box scores or any combination of visuals and game information.

Flanking the main board will be two smaller video boards. The existing Bank of America hitters and pitchers board in left center field will turn into a 17 feet high by 100 feet wide video screen with a new illuminated Bank of America sign atop the board. A third video screen, 16 feet high by 30 feet wide, will connect the Ford and Dunkin Donuts sponsor signs above the bleachers in right field. These Diamond Vision video systems will prominently feature real-time information such as batter and pitcher stats, pitch speed and type, box scores, promotions, announcements, upcoming schedules and other messaging.

In addition to the video boards, the Red Sox will be concrete repair, waterproofing and seat replacements of the right field seats in the lower bowl of the stadium, completing the repair and waterproofing of the entire lower seating bowl which began in 2007. Dugout, Field and Loge box seats are also being replaced and will include cup holders. The Dugout and Field seats will be padded. Concession and merchandise stands are also being expanded and new ones installed near Gate D. And the concourse from Gate D to Gate C is being repaired and upgraded as well.

The Red Sox also proposed an onfield adjustment. The Boston Herald reported yesterday that the Red Sox were seeking approval from the Boston landmarks commission to widen the bullpens by approximately nine feet. In doing so the distance to right field will shrink from 380 feet to 371 feet, likely adding a few home runs to both Red Sox and opposing hitters tally.

The coming 2011 campaign will mark Fenway's 99th season in operation. The improvements began prior to 2002 to culminate in the 100th anniversary of the park, what is expected to be a year-long celebration of Boston baseball and in particular the iconic ballpark, romanticized as a baseball cathedral by many a writer.

New LED Video Boards Help Make Minor League Games More Memorable PDF Print E-mail
Written by Joe Tetreault   
Tuesday, 19 October 2010 13:40

As big-league ballclubs contemplate adding new extremely big screen technological marvels to their ballparks, minor league teams have become laboratories for the installation and implementation of high-definition video boards to enhance fan experience. In addition to new technology powering the giant boards and new designs, new providers give clubs unprecedented options when it comes to implementing high definition video in real time.

This year marked the debut of video boards in Pawtucket, Sacramento and Indianapolis. But while Sacramento and Indianapolis have newer parks, and Pawtucket's McCoy stadium dates back to its construction in the early 1940s, with but one extensive renovation in the late 1990s. Even with the expansion and renovation, McCoy Stadium is one of the smallest ballparks in the International league as well as the oldest.

The difficulty of fitting a the largest video board in New England into McCoy Stadium's cozy fan-friendly environs was the initial challenge that the Red Sox AAA affiliate faced. The club also faced an urgent deadline due to the discontinuation of the technology employed in the previous video board at McCoy. To solve the technology problem, the PawSox contracted TS Sports to do the installation. TS Sports in turn partnered with Lighthouse Technologies, a Hong Kong manufacturer of outdoor LED video display solutions.

This was a departure from the previous board which was manufactured by the industry leader, Daktronics. In fact, of the new boards in AAA only Indianapolis used a Daktronics board. Sacramento's board for Raley Field was manufactured by D3 LED, whose boards have found homes in Times Square among other city environments. Clearly competition has come to the marketplace.

Daktronics remains the dominant player, and probably the most innovative. The Indianapolis Indians installed a Daktronics LED board directly into the left field wall of Victory Field. At 120 feet wide, it was by far wider than the boards at McCoy or Raley which both used the standard HD aspect ratio.  With the Astros already announcing plans to redo their video boards and other ballclubs likely to follow suit, how the business is divvied up will be worth watching this offseason.

For the PawSox, they can't be happier with the product TS Sports and Lighthouse delivered. "High def is the big thing now," said Kevin Galligan, who handles media creation for the team. "You can come to the ballgame and see crystal clear images of the game."

And not just the game they are watching.

"We can capture a live feed from NESN and play a David Ortiz home run at will," Galligan added.

The ability to blend highlights from the ongoing game as well as other games, interactive contests and trivia, and video of the fans themselves combines to help maintain the long-standing PawSox tradition of providing a big-league atmosphere at minor league prices.

The Houston Astros will install two new, high-definition video boards and a large ribbonboard at Minute Maid Park in time for the start of the 2011 Major League Baseball season, Astros President of Business Operations Pam Gardner announced on Thursday.

The new primary video board will be located in right field and will measure 54 feet high and 124 feet wide, making it the second-largest board of its kind in the Major Leagues. The Astros current video board is 26 feet high and 45 feet wide. A smaller video board will be installed in left field, and a ribbon board stretching from foul pole to foul pole (over 1,000 feet long) will also be added.

“We’re extremely excited about the changes,” Gardner commented. “It is time. Our current video board has served us well, but it is time for us to make these upgrades, which will increase the entertainment value for our fans. We’re adding a second board in left field so that the fans in right field can enjoy a video board, which has not been the case in the past.

“Everything will be HD, which is the way the world is going. You have to stay fresh. We view Minute Maid Park as our home. It’s our home that we welcome our fans into.”

PREMIUM CLUB SEATING AREA TO BE ADDED

Gardner also announced today that the Astros will be adding a new, premium club seating area on the lower press box/main concourse level behind home plate for the 2011 season. This seating area will include an upscale bar and dining experience option for fans.

“We envision the new seating area to be kind of a fun, hip, space for our fans that will be located in a prime viewing location in the ballpark,” Gardner said.

The lower press box, which had been for the writing press, will be moved up to the broadcast level press box. All media will now be on the same level, which is the case in several Major League ballparks.

The Astros announced that more details and information on the Astros new video boards and renovations will be released later this month.

Despite the fact that the San Francisco Giants are still steadfast in blocking attempts by the Oakland A’s to move to San Jose, Lew Wolff, the owner of the Athletics and Major League Soccer’s San Jose Earthquakes announced Tuesday the formal selection of an architect for the teams’ proposed new stadiums, selecting 360 Architecture for both projects.

“During the past few years, 360 Architecture has worked closely with us as we have studied design alternatives and analyzed the feasibility of a new ballpark for the A’s and a new stadium for the Earthquakes, on a variety of sites,” Wolff said. “Under the leadership of Brad Schrock, the firm has demonstrated the ability to be an excellent steward for the two projects as they continue to move forward.”

Recent notable projects by 360 Architecture include New Meadowlands Stadium, home of the New York Giants and Jets of the NFL.

“We are excited to bring to each project our passion for an innovative design that achieves success for the team and delivers an exceptional experience for their fans,” said Brad Schrock, senior principal at 360 Architecture.

The new stadiums are planned to be constructed privately, with no public money provided. The stadium for the Earthquakes will be built as an anchor and catalyst of a mixed use residential, retail, R&D and hotel development next to San Jose International Airport . The implementation of the proposed A's venue is dependent on a decision from Major League Baseball, according to Wolff.

The Giants were granted Santa Clara Co. as part of their operating territory in the '90s when Bob Lurie was attempting to get a stadium for the Giants built in Santa Clara. When voter referendums failed and Peter Magowan was able to get what is now AT&T Park built, MLB still reaffirmed the territorial rights to Santa Clara Co that the A's once controlled.

HKS Unveils D-Backs-Rockies Spring Training Design PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maury Brown   
Tuesday, 17 August 2010 12:03

Salt River Fields

HKS Architecture has unveiled the design plans the new Salt River Fields at Talking Stick spring training stadium, which will be the new shared home for the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies. The design follows in the footsteps of the Camelback Ranch spring training facility for the Dodgers and the White Sox in that it is being deemed a "destination-driven environment" for fans.

Salt River Fields also highlights how clubs are reaching out to new methods of funding. The 140-acre spring training home of the two clubs is the first training facility built on Native American land. Owned by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the complex consists of separate training facilities and clubhouses accommodating each team as well as an 11,000-seat central stadium.

The Community’s theme for the ball park is “Two Teams – Two Tribes – One Home.”

The two teams housed in the venue are the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies: the two tribes are the Pima and Maricopa tribes which comprise the Community.

The expansive facility is set to open on February 1, 2011, and is located at Loop 101 and Indian Bend Road, on Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community land.

According to Mo Stein, FAIA, principal and director of HKS’s Phoenix office, Salt River Fields will be active 365 days a year. “The Diamondbacks and Rockies will have a baseball presence for training at all levels as well as community activities including youth camps, community events, festivals and retreats – boosting the local economy year round.”

Mortenson Construction is the general contractor for Salt River Fields.

Brewers Going With Massive Hi-Def Display for Miller Park Next Season PDF Print E-mail

Miller Park HD

The Milwaukee Brewers today unveiled designs and specifications for the new high definition Miller Park scoreboard, which will be installed prior to the start of the 2011 regular season. The scoreboard is being designed, manufactured, and installed by Daktronics Inc.

The new video board features a single screen, pure high definition display, and will be the third-largest scoreboard in Major League Baseball at 5,940 square feet. The only larger boards in Major League Baseball are Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium (8,900 square feet) and Phoenix’s Chase Field (6,200 square feet).

The new video board will replace the existing 1,296 square foot video board and the 2,432 square foot matrix board.

In addition, the new video board will be just the third true 1080 display  in baseball, and the fifth in existence in all major US sports venues. Other facilities featuring 1080 displays include Yankee Stadium (Yankees), Target Field (Twins), Cowboys Stadium (NFL Dallas Cowboys) and American Airlines Center (NBA Dallas Mavericks).

“When you factor in the overall size and resolution of the new display, we believe this will be the finest video board in Major League Baseball,” said Brewers Executive Vice President – Business Operations Rick Schlesinger. “This is going to be a spectacular addition to the fan experience at Miller Park in 2011.”

The current Miller Park video board features 133,624 pixels. The new high definition display will have 2,358,720 pixels, giving it nearly 18 times better resolution.

“Daktronics is excited to continue our partnership by providing the most impactful and visual piece yet,” Tony Mulder, Daktronics Sales Manager. “This true high definition video display experience will greatly enhance what is already one of the premier facilities in Major League Baseball.”

The video display system will utilize Daktronics newest 15 millimeter LED technology, featuring a tighter resolution and improved image quality, and will measure approximately 54 feet high by 110 feet wide. This technology and its control system allow for complete flexibility in programming. The video board can operate as a single giant display, or be divided into multiple zones (windows) to show a wide variety of statistics, information, graphics, animation and live and recorded video.

“Quite simply, the difference in quality and scope from what we currently have at Miller Park will be staggering,” Schlesinger said.

The Stadium’s video and audio consultant, Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon and Williams is working with the Brewers and the Southeast Wisconsin Professional Baseball Park District through all steps of the process in developing the new scoreboard.  Mortenson Construction, a leader in sports facility construction and southeastern Wisconsin’s largest builder, is serving as General Contractor for the project.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Brewers to deliver this state-of-the-art scoreboard to Miller Park and the community,” said Andy Wiegman, Construction Executive for Mortenson Construction.  “Our unique blend of sports facility construction combined with our experience completing similar projects across the nation will ensure the successful installation of this new high-definition video display.”

The scoreboard project also will include renovations and upgrades to portions of the Miller Park sound system.

The new high definition video display system will be completely integrated with the existing Club level Ribbon Board and Out of Town Scoreboards that were installed by Daktronics in 2006. Outside Miller Park, Daktronics installed a double-sided marquee display (the I-94 Message Board) in 2005.

A fan, leaning out to grab a foul ball during the fifth inning of the game between the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers, fell approximately 30 feet from section 235 in the club level to  of Rangers Ballpark in Arlington to the lower seating bowl below. The event occurred at approximately 8:30pm when Nelson Cruz of the Rangers sliced a ball foul.

The fan was immediately tended to by EMS and a statement from the Rangers said they are monitoring reports from John Peter Smith Hospital. The club said in the statement that the fan was able to move all his extremities, and was responsive to paramedics when the EMS workers reached him.

Four other individuals seated in the lower bowl were treated in the first aid area at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. None were transported to the hospital.

Play was stopped for 16 min. while the fans were tended to.

Red Sox Unveil Statue Dedicated to 'Teammates' Doerr, Williams, Pesky, and DiMaggio PDF Print E-mail

The Teammates

The Boston Red Sox today unveiled a new statue dedicated to Bobby Doerr, Dom DiMaggio, Johnny Pesky and Ted Williams at Fenway Park. The statue recognizes the remarkable bonds of camaraderie that these four Red Sox legends enjoyed for over half a century, first as teammates, and then as lifelong friends, the story of which was immortalized in David Halberstam’s memorable book The Teammates – Portrait of a Friendship. Created by sculptor Antonio Tobias Mendez, the new statue, featuring the four men standing shoulder to shoulder holding baseball bats, is located immediately outside Gate B at Fenway Park, at the intersection of Van Ness and Ipswich Streets in Boston.

“They were the greatest of players and the best of friends,” said Red Sox Principal Owner John W. Henry. “We felt that it would be fitting to dedicate a statue to the memory of not just their time on the hallowed field of Fenway Park but also to the steadfast loyalty and devotion they had for one another as well as their lifelong love for the game of baseball.”

Doerr, DiMaggio, Pesky and Williams were all teammates on the Red Sox of the 1940s and parts of the 30s and 50s. Doerr was the first to don a Red Sox uniform in 1937. Williams came aboard in 1939, DiMaggio in 1940 and Pesky in 1942. They were all All-Stars and are members of the Red Sox Hall of Fame. Doerr and Williams have also been enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Beyond their playing careers, all four men forged an uncommon friendship that lasted long after they retired as active players. They had all grown up on the West Coast – Doerr in Los Angeles, DiMaggio in San Francisco, Pesky in Portland, OR and Williams in San Diego – and that common background brought them closer to each other. They also all served in the military – Doerr in the Army, DiMaggio and Pesky in the Navy, and Williams in the Marines during World War II. Williams also answered the call of duty a second time during the Korean War.

The figures of all four players on the statue are depicted as they appeared in 1946, together with similar uniform styles, caps and spikes. The scale of each of the four figures on the sculpture is 120% of their actual height. Ted, who was the tallest of the four in real life at 6 feet 3 inches, is the tallest figure at 7 feet 6 inches. Following the same scale, the figure of Bobby Doerr is approximately 7 feet 1 inch while the figures of Dom DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky are both about 7 feet tall. Each figure weighs about 500-600 pounds and is made of cast bronze. The pedestal weighs approximately 15 tons and is made of Deer Isle Gray solid granite from Deer Isle, ME. It is 3 feet tall, 10 feet wide and 5 feet deep.

The existing Ted Williams statue of him putting a cap on the head of a child who is a patient at the Jimmy Fund has been moved a few feet down Van Ness Street to accommodate both statues alongside each other. The Williams statue, which remains unchanged in other respects, was moved earlier this week to accommodate the larger ‘Teammates’ statue on a spot where its width would not block access for fans through Gate B.

The selection of June 9 as the date of dedication comes on the 54th anniversary of June 9, 1946, a date on which all four teammates contributed immensely in winning both games of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers with scores of 7-1 and 11-6. Ted Williams had a home run in each game and his blast in the second game, which measured at 502 feet, is still the longest home run ever hit at Fenway Park. DiMaggio had a home run and a triple in the second game along with a 2-run single in the first game. Pesky hit safely in both games and had 3 RBI, and while Doerr did not record a hit, he contributed with 8 putouts and 7 assists while playing in both games.

The creation and installation of the statue is being funded entirely by the Boston Red Sox as a gift to the City of Boston and the fans of Red Sox Nation.

Doerr, DiMaggio, Pesky, Williams

In the, “Great idea for a statue department”. . .

The Boston Red Sox will unveil a new statue outside Gate B at Fenway Park dedicated to Red Sox legends Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky and Dom DiMaggio, and the bonds of their remarkable friendship, which was immortalized in David Halberstam’s poignant 2003 book The Teammates: Portrait of a Friendship on Weds. June 9 at 10:30am.

Sculpted by Maryland based sculptor, Antonio Tobias Mendez, the statue features all four men standing alongside each other in a group with baseball bats in their hands.  The new statue will be located immediately outside Gate B at Fenway Park.

As to who will be in attendance, a statement from the Red Sox simply says, “Local elected leaders; City of Boston officials; Red Sox Ownership, Front Office Executives and Staff; Red Sox Alumni and other notable guests. Given that Doerr now lives in Oregon, and has scaled back travel due to his age, if he’s in attendance, it would a great thing for Red Sox fans.

Marlins Ballpark Construction Sees Milestone with Roof Steel PDF Print E-mail

The New Marlins Ballpark rising in Little Havana has hit a new milestone. The first piece of structural steel to support the fixed roof has been erected. This 24,000 pound plate beam is the first of 13 plate beams which will form the fixed steel structure on the west side of the ballpark. This steel will continue to be erected over the next several weeks and the west canopy is expected to be completed by early July.

"After obtaining our master building permit from the city last week, it allows us to focus our energy on the construction of the ballpark and the Public Infrastructure. The timing of this new milestone is critical to delivering this project on-time and on-budget," said Claude Delorme, Executive VP of Ballpark Development. "With more than 34% of our schedule behind us, our attention shifts to the fixed and movable roof for the next 13 months."

The construction manager, Hunt/Moss will continue to erect the structural steel pieces along the east, south, and north sides of the ballpark. The entire fixed canopy is expected to be completed by January 2011. Some of the Miami-based companies working on the installation of the structural steel pieces are Omega Steel (decking), George's Welding (miscellaneous fabrication), El Champion Painting (painting), RJR Construction (providing grout), A&B Hardware (miscellaneous supplies), and The Finest Towing (trucking services).

In the coming weeks, the shoring tower erection will begin on the west side of the project. This will provide temporary support for the retractable roof structural steel. Erection of these shoring towers will continue through June. Erection of the retractable roof will continue through August 2011. Structal is the fabricator of the structural steel and LPR Construction Co. is the erector. Miami-based D.K.G. & Associates, Ltd. is providing a significant amount of the mobilization and shoring tower efforts for this portion of the project.

Marlins Video Display

Daktronics Inc. (Nasdaq-DAKT) announced today that it will provide a custom-designed, integrated scoring and video system for the New Marlins Ballpark opening in the spring of 2012. The multi-million dollar contract with Hunt/Moss, A Joint Venture, includes a unique high definition video display, multiple digital ribbon boards, pitchers display, out-of-town game display, ticket window displays, digital clocks and control system. Installation of the first of many displays is scheduled to begin during the fall of 2011.

“Daktronics is known throughout the industry as the leader in providing these types of integrated systems that include multiple displays showing a wide variety of content,” said Claude Delorme, Executive Vice President of the Florida Marlins. “With their broad product line, control system with superior data integration capabilities, and their experience working new construction projects, Daktronics was clearly the best choice. I know Marlins fans will absolutely love the new ballpark. The digital display technology will be a huge part of the game day presentation.”

“Daktronics not only understands the needs of the end user, but also the importance of the design of the system’s components to make the installation go smoothly… getting done on time, safely and within budget,” said Pat Delano, Construction Manager with Hunt/Moss. “Daktronics’ experience and expertise in sports venues brings the added value required to meet the owner’s expectations.”

The super system’s high definition video display, one of the ballpark’s signature features, will measure approximately 101 feet wide (top of display) and 51 feet tall. Daktronics popular HD-X LED video technology will populate the uniquely shaped board.

Daktronics patented ProRail cabinet design will be used with the digital ribbon boards on the fascia, providing improved sight lines and reduced construction costs. A total of six digital ribbon boards will be incorporated in the seating bowl and at the ballpark’s entry gates, the longest more than 950 feet that will stretch from the right field line to left field line on the club level fascia.

Two additional displays will be positioned within the left field wall, the largest of which will measure nearly 100 feet wide and will be used primarily to display stats and scores from out-of-town games in real time. Two pitcher boards will keep fans in the know regarding each pitcher’s performance. Other full-color displays will be positioned behind left and right field, and another near the main ramp. Additional components include numerous ticket window displays, backlit signage, and scrolling signage.

“Daktronics is pleased to make this important announcement,” said Kyle Adams, Regional Sales Manager for the Company. “The Marlins’ integrated system will be one of the most capable in all of the world. Our engineering, manufacturing, project management and support teams are up to the challenge of creating and supporting this super system for years to come.”

Included as part of the New Marlins Ballpark project will be Daktronics video image processing technologies and the new Show Control system. According to Daktronics, "The company’s video processing system is touted by experts as the best in the industry, processing and scaling live and recorded video signal to vivid digital imagery on large displays. The Show Control system is the one of the latest developments from Daktronics, providing a power combination of control software, data integration, and playback hardware that forms a comprehensive production solution."

For more on Show Control, visit www.daktronics.com/show.

As part of the contract, Keyframe, the creative services division of Daktronics, will be creating a large amount of graphical and animated content to run on the displays during the 2012 baseball season. Content will include logos for the Marlins and their sponsors, numerous crowd prompts, noise meters, headshot templates, starting lineups and specific content for the various information displays.

Mariners SANYO monitor

Put this on the, “You know you want one,” list for the backyard...

SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. and the Seattle Mariners announced today that a new, Full HD 82” LCD Weatherproof “Street Display” has been installed at Safeco Field.

The display is more than just a standard HD encased in plastic. The street display being installed by SANYO has waterproofing, dust protection and cooling technology, which can allow it to be used in the wet and the cold, along with those hot days on the edge of Puget Sound. The display features high brightness and advanced cooling control mechanisms for those days when direct sunshine and heat hit the mega display. Weatherproof monitors will allow the stadium to display contents for ads or public information with clarity and brightness even outdoors.

“This 82-inch LCD monitor will give us a new way to provide information to our fans at Safeco Field without having to worry about the effects of weather.  We are very happy that SANYO chose to make its entrance into the North American digital signage market here at our home ballpark,” said Bob Aylward, Executive Vice President Business Operations, Seattle Mariners.

The signage serves a dual purpose, providing pertinent information to customers and the general public, as well as conveying sponsor messaging. Digital signage is very big in North America and Europe. Along with the proliferation of digital signs, there is also a shift to network the devices, and it is estimated that the market for digital signage will continue to grow to a market scope of approximately $2 billion in North America, and is said that it will expand to about $10 billion by 2015 (according SANYO forecasts).

“It is our privilege on this occasion to have the Mariners install our first large 82-inch LCD Weatherproof Street Display,” commented Mitsuru Homma, Executive Vice President of SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. “With this prominent appeal to our latest innovation in digital signage, this type of large monitor has officially made our presence known in the North American digital signage market.”

The Mariners are slated to purchase and install approximately 250 SANYO TVs in their stadium this fiscal year, and when combined with the TVs already installed, the number of SANYO TVs in Safeco Field will be 656 units.

Main Features of 82” LCD Weatherproof Display

  1. Industry's top class 82”, high brightness (1300 cd/m2) LCD panel, with flexibility to adjust brightness dependent on ambient lighting conditions (1300 cd/m2 to 280 cd/m2)
  2. Waterproof, dust-proof design with reinforced glass to allow installation outdoors in a variety of environmental conditions
  3. Built-in heat pipe and compressors to create a unique cooling system, allowing placement or installation even under sunlight conditions outdoors

In recognition of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, Major League Baseball Clubs will host a variety of greening events and incorporate environmental initiatives into their games to help raise awareness for environmental issues. In the lead up to April 22, on Earth Day, and throughout the remainder of the season, the Clubs will host special events at their parks, educate fans about environmentally responsible behavior, conduct green events in their cities and initiate a host of other activities designed to promote the importance of environmentally friendly practices.

In addition, as part of Major League Baseball’s ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship, MLB is developing, in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a comprehensive software system to collect and analyze stadium operations data to develop and distribute best practice information across the 30 Clubs. This is the first time a professional sports league will implement a software program throughout the league to collect data for the purpose of documenting environmental practices and for sharing information about environmental best practices at stadiums.

“Major League Baseball has responsibilities to our fans and society at large that go beyond the playing field,” said Baseball Commissioner, Allan H. (Bud) Selig. “Our Clubs have made a commitment to sustainability and are leaders in their communities raising awareness and educating fans not just on Earth Day, but everyday about environmental stewardship.”

MLB Clubs have worked with the NRDC during the past few years to develop recycling programs, reduce their energy use, purchase renewable energy and educate fans about what they can do to reduce their impact on the planet.

On the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, MLB Clubs will continue to use their visibility to encourage fans to become more eco-conscious through a variety of eco-themed activities. Select READ MORE to see highlights by each of the 30 clubs:

Fenway ParkThe Boston Red Sox today welcomed Mayor Thomas M. Menino and city officials to Fenway Park to review the “Year IX Improvements” at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark, which celebrates its 98th anniversary this year.  This annual rite of spring occurs before the opening of each baseball season to showcase the Red Sox and City of Boston’s collaboration on Fenway Park.

“We are entering the last inning of improvements to Fenway Park, and this old ballpark has never looked better,” said Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino.  “This American icon that once was cramped and congested now has more seats and spaces, wide open concourses, new and improved facilities and many more food and beverage options for our fans.  Leading up to its 100th Anniversary in 2012, our focus has been always to improve and expand the physical structure without disturbing the warmth, charm and authenticity that surrounds this ballpark.”

The 2010 Fenway Park Improvements were designed to improve internal circulation, ingress and egress, to expand concessions and bathroom facilities, and to insure the long-term structural viability of the ballpark.

Inside MLB's Guidelines for Movement of Retractable Roofs PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 8
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Sunday, 07 March 2010 18:22
Chase Field
Ballparks with retractable roofs or side panels, such as Chase Field in
Arizona, are subject to rules on when they can be open and shut

MLB has rules for nearly everything, and opening and closing the roof in retractable-roofed stadiums is no different. No one has <ahem> raised the roof on these rules yet, but they do go to show you nothing—and we me nothing—is left to chance in Major League Baseball.

The following is from the 2010 Red or Green Book distributed to the media:

MLB GUIDELINES FOR MOVEMENT OF RETRACTABLE ROOFS

Championship Season (regular season)

The decision to open or close the roof prior to the start of the game resides with the home Club. Each Club with a retractable roof shall file with the MLB Baseball Operations Department a list of the criteria it intends to use during the championship season to decide whether to begin a game with its ballpark’s roof open or closed. The home Club should inform the umpire crew chief and visiting Club if it intends to move the roof during the game.

A. Closing an Opened Roof

If the game begins with the roof open, it may be closed only in the event of impending rain or other adverse weather conditions that may affect play or spectator comfort. If the home Club believes such conditions exist, the home Club shall confer with the umpire crew chief, who shall in turn inform the visiting Club. The visiting Club may object, if it feels a competitive imbalance will arise. In that event, the umpire crew chief shall make the final decision. If there is no objection, the decision to close the roof rests solely with the home Club.

B. Opening a Closed Roof

If the game begins with the roof closed, it may be opened if, in the opinion of the home Club, the climatic environment is such that fan comfort and enjoyment will be best served by opening the roof. A closed roof may not be opened on the grounds that weather conditions may affect spectator comfort after the conclusion of the sixth inning. Prior to opening the roof, the home Club shall confer with the umpire crew chief, who shall in turn inform the visiting Club. The visiting Club may object, if it feels a competitive imbalance will arise. In that event, the umpire crew chief shall make the final decision.

C. Roof Movement

The roof may be moved only once during the game (i.e., once closed, it may not be re-opened, and once opened, may not be re-closed) unless inclement weather or other adverse weather conditions indicate otherwise. Clubs should be very cautious of opening a closed roof if the possibility of inclement weather exists.

The movement of the roof must commence at the conclusion of an inning, unless weather conditions are such that the umpire crew chief deems it necessary to close the roof immediately so that play is not interrupted. The movement of the roof shall be continuous and play will not be stopped.

Wall Panels (Milwaukee and Arizona)

The home Club shall decide whether to open or close the wall panels prior to the start of the game. Once the game begins, the panels shall be treated like the roof, in that they may not be moved without first notifying the umpire crew chief, who shall afford the visiting Club the right to object. The panels may be moved only once during the game, and may be moved only at the conclusion of an inning.

Postseason

For all games in the postseason (Division Series, League Championship Series, World Series), the Commissioner or his designee shall make all decisions regarding roof/wall panel movement, in consultation with the home Club and the umpire crew chief. The home Club shall provide to the Baseball Operations department the name of the individual responsible for the movement of the roof/wall panels. The Commissioner or his designee shall take into account the criteria that the home Club uses during the championship season, as reflected on the Club’s filing with the MLB Baseball Operations Department.

Minute Maid Park scoreboard

On Monday, the Houston Astros Ballpark Entertainment department received two Golden Matrix Awards for the 2009 season, including the Best Overall Video Display Award (Best Show in Baseball). The awards are handed out by IDEA (Information Display Entertainment Association) at their annual Golden Matrix Awards Ceremony.

 

This year’s ceremony was held on Wednesday, February 17 in Tampa, Florida, and capped off a three-day conference where participating teams attended group breakout sessions, received field related training and voted for the Golden Matrix Awards.

 

By winning the Best Overall Display Award in baseball for 2009, the Astros ballpark entertainment department has now won the award five consecutive seasons (2005-09). No other team in professional sports (MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL) has won such an award in three straight seasons, making the Astros run unprecedented. In addition to their Best Show in Baseball Award they also won the Best Interactive In-game Feature for their Guess the Flick! segments.

 

The Astros Ballpark Entertainment team is composed of Kirby Kander, Senior Director of Creative Services, Brock Jessel, Director of Ballpark Entertainment, and Joey Graham, Production Coordinator.

 

“We are so proud that our Ballpark Entertainment Department was able to take home the highest honor in professional baseball again this year by winning another Best Show in Baseball Award,” said Jennifer Germer, Astros Vice President of Marketing. “This record-setting fifth consecutive win for Best Overall Video Display in baseball is truly a tribute to their creativity, knowledge and dedication.”

 

IDEA is a membership composed of Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, the NCAA, and minor league franchises. The group also has allied members who represent various vendors and production companies. IDEA was founded in the 1980s to discuss the rules and regulations of video boards and scoreboards within professional baseball and has since expanded into an organization that provides hands-on training, previews new technology within the field and bestows awards for excellence in game-day presentations.

 

Since 2005, the Astros Ballpark Entertainment team has collected 13 Golden Matrix Awards, the most of any team in baseball and the second-most in any sport during that span.
