Daktronics LED Technology To Light Up Rangers Ballpark in Arlington
Daktronics has announced that it is designing, manufacturing, and installing full-color light-emitting–diode (LED) display technology throughout Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers.
“We’re pleased to work with Daktronics again on this upgrade to the ballpark,” says Chuck Morgan, VP of in-park entertainment for the team. “Together, we’ve put together a great addition to the ballpark that will give fans more enjoyment at each and every Rangers game.”
A new video display will replace the existing manual scoreboard on the left-field wall. This display will feature Daktronics PS-23 LED video technology and will showcase complete game information from other major-league games as well as video-replay highlights.
More than 1,200 linear feet of full-color, digital-LED displays will be installed along the lower-suite-level fascia, the lower Home Run Porch fascia, and the fascia below the Diamond Club in left field.
Daktronics ProAd digital ribbon displays are flexible. When not showing graphics, animation, stats or out-of-town game scores, they can highlight advertisers with a variety of visuals and messages.
“We think, from an architectural design, our ballpark is as pretty a stadium as there is in baseball,” says Rangers President Nolan Ryan. “We’re trying to balance having the best up-to-date scoreboards that are available to enhance the fan experience, while maintaining that step-back-in-time feeling that you have at Wrigley. We feel like we’ve accomplished that.”
