(TRENTON, NJ) The Trenton Thunder, Double A affiliate of the New York Yankees, announced on Monday that the team will be installing a state-of-the-art multimedia video board project at ARM & HAMMER Park in time for the 2013 season. Once installed, the project, which includes the addition of a 21' x 68' high density screen in right field, a new 20' x 16' display in left field and a new 14' x 15' highway marquee will make unprecedented technological advances while enhancing the fan experience at ARM & HAMMER Park.
"This video project is a fantastic way to give the fans something exciting as we start our 20th season," said Thunder General Manager Will Smith. "There is no doubt that fans will be 'wowed' when they walk into the ballpark and see the enormous screens, high resolution picture and superior brightness. The Thunder entertainment experience will exceed everyone's expectations."
The centerpiece of the improvement will be the 21'x 68' world-class video board in right field that totals 1,428 square feet, more than four times larger than the previous video screen.
Other aspects of the project include a new message/data display in left field that will provide superior visibility and a larger and higher definition picture display on the highway marquee found outside the stadium along Rt. 29. The Thunder's video production will now have replay capabilities, enhanced HD cameras, pitch speed and more.
The Trenton Thunder's 20th season will begin on Thursday, April 4 at Portland with the home opener slated for Thursday, April 11 vs. Richmond. Single game tickets go on sale for the first time on Friday, February 1 online at trentonthunder.com, by phone, 609-394-3300 or in person at ARM & HAMMER Park.
