Everett, WA - The Everett AquaSox, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 191 and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Cascade Chapter are proud to announce that Daktronics will be installing a new 15HD video board in left-center field replacing the existing structure.
