The Oakland A’s are finally getting HD scoreboards

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 In fact, as more teams started installing HD screens, the A’s continued to use their low-budget, out of date screens.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.

I don’t mind the out of date scoreboard but it is nice to know that at least one aspect of the experience at the game will be nice.

I wonder how this will look. We’ll see whenever it’s installed.
