The New Hampshire Fisher Cats are celebrating the 15th season of baseball at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium with a massive upgrade: a spectacular new HD video board.
At over 1,850 square feet, the new video board is nearly five times the size of the previous video screen (384 square feet).
Standing 31.5 ft. high, 58.8 ft. wide, and 66.7 ft. from corner to corner, the brilliant new display will dwarf the old model (16 ft. high x 24 ft. wide), which will enter retirement after 14 years of admirable standard-definition service.
A brand new instant replay system, presented by Service Credit Union, will headline the many in-game improvements fans can look forward to in 2019. With the addition of new HD cameras and a completely redesigned production room, Service Credit Union Instant Replays will provide an up-close-and-personal look at the future stars of Major League Baseball, and the dazzling plays they make on the field.
The head and claws of the Fisher Cats primary logo — complete with luminescent eyes — will adorn the top of the video board to create a truly unique look.
“Like everything we do here, we’re making this upgrade with our fans in mind,” said Fisher Cats President Mike Ramshaw. “We’ve got some of the best on-field entertainment in Minor League Baseball, and this new video board will help bring the fan experience to new heights. This is ‘Ferocious Fun’ like you’ve never seen it before.”
Fans can look forward to interactive games on the video board with help from Classic Hits Frank 106.3. Attendees will have chance to participate in games like “Name That Tune” and “Finish The Lyric” for a chance to win stuff. By the way, the only way to practice for these games is to listen to Frank 106.3
Fans will have their first chance to see the new video board in action on Opening Night, Thursday, April 4, as the defending Eastern League Champion Fisher Cats begin a seven-game homestand against the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (New York Mets) and Reading Fightin’ Phils (Philadelphia Phillies).
