Ever since becoming an A’s fan as a kid, the scoreboard has always been pretty subpar. In fact, as more teams started installing HD screens, the A’s continued to use their low-budget, out of date screens.
It is so commonly associated with the place, they even made a shirt of the scoreboard (with some bulbs out).
But now with this news, along with the approved 10-year lease, I’m really excited to see what this will look like. I still want the team to get a new stadium but for now, this will hold the team here in Oakland and at least possibly keep them in the discussion.
