The Colorado Rockies’ rise into a playoff chase this season, they hope, will propel the club into contention for several years. On Wednesday, they announced the construction of a new Coors Field scoreboard to match.
The video board hanging on a steel lattice frame in left field will be replaced by a high-definition video component during the winter after an agreement between the Rockies and the Metropolitan Baseball Stadium District, the state division that owns Coors Field.
The Rockies will also install a new speaker sound system for their home ballpark. The board will be uniquely shaped, with a mountain cutout atop the display.
