Sky Sox set to unveil new feature at stadium

Ever miss a towering home run because you were putting ketchup on your hot dog?

The Sky Sox will soon have you covered.

On June 5, the team will debut an HD video board at Security Service Field measuring 1,203 square feet that will provide replays throughout the game. The new board will nearly quadruple the digital video space of the current scoreboard, with the extra space also displaying full lineups, player statistics and game line score.

Construction will begin May 27 and should take Daktronics, which designed, manufactured and will install the board, six days to complete.

“This is a very exciting day for our organization, sponsors and Sky Sox fans throughout the region as we make an historic facility upgrade that will significantly enhance the fan experience at Security Service Field for years to come,” Sky Sox president and general manager Tony Ensor said in a press release. “Once installed, Sky Sox fans will be able to enjoy the full HD experience on a video board that will rank among the best in professional baseball.”

The full project will cost about $600,000 and will include HD cameras and a new production room with graphics and instant-replay machines.

The video board will feature variable content zoning that can display one large image or be divided into multiple zones to show live video, replays, stats, animations and sponsor messages.

The Sky Sox are the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. They will debut the screen at an eight-game homestand against the Round Rock (Texas Rangers) and Iowa (Chicago Cubs).
