Rockies unveil renderings of massive mountain-shaped scoreboard (pics)

The Colorado Rockies have announced that the construction of a massive, mountain-shaped scoreboard is underway at Coors Field to help commemorate the organization’s 25th anniversary.

The Rockies this week unveiled renderings of the impressive new feature, still under construction, that will be located in left-center field.

One of several ballpark improvement projects, the new LED scoreboard is expected to be ready for the Rockies’ home opener on April 6.

According to a release from the team, the new scoreboard “will measure 8,369 square feet, 258% larger than the former Coors Field scoreboard. Equivalent in display size to 784 60-inch televisions, the scoreboard will feature a total of 6.8 million LEDs. In addition to being more than two times larger than the former scoreboard, it will have a uniquely Colorado Rockies shape.”
