More facility news from the Major League Baseball (MLB) team Pittsburgh Pirates, as the team announced a new videoboard and other digital signage as part of 2023 upgrades to its residence – the PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, US.

‘Ballpark Digest’ stated that the 2023 PNC Park upgrades also include fascia ribbon boards and in-park sound system. The improvements will make their debut on Opening Day.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are an American professional baseball team based in Pittsburgh. The Pirates compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League Central division.

The 38,362-capacity PNC Park is a baseball stadium on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, US. It is the fifth home of the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Baseball (MLB). It was opened during the 2001 MLB season, after the controlled implosion of the Pirates’ previous home, Three Rivers Stadium.

New York (US)-based the Major League Baseball (MLB) is a professional baseball organization and the oldest major professional sports league in the world. The MLB is composed of 30 total teams, divided equally between the National League and the American League, with 29 in the United States and 1 in Canada.

The Major League Baseball announced games times for the 2023 season, including Opening Day on March 30th. All 30 teams – 15 games – are scheduled to play on Opening Day, which would be the first time since 1968 that every team is playing its first game on the same day.

‘Ballpark Digest’ further stated that the new videoboard in left field will occupy more than twice the area of the previous display, without taking away from views of downtown Pittsburgh, complete with a 10-millimeter pixel spacing display, resulting in more than 4K pixels in width. Additionally, true high dynamic range (HDR) capability combined with higher brightness will enhance the action on the field for both day and night games.

In addition to the scoreboard, the Pirates are adding new fascia ribbon boards throughout the park, which will improve clarity for in-game stats and messaging, as well as new home plate, field level and dugout LED displays. The speaker system throughout the seating bowl has also been replaced with a new system providing crisp and consistent audio for all fans throughout the ballpark.

Maintained Travis Williams, Pirates President, “We know from our many interactions with fans that the way in which they consume the game action is ever changing. The new scoreboard, facia displays and sound system will allow our fans to be even more immersed in the action on and off the field. It is important that we continue to build upon and enhance everything that makes PNC Park a unique and special place. Last offseason we successfully debuted the revamped River Walk. This season we are excited to unveil additional fan- focused enhancements, beginning with the new sights and sounds our fans will experience this season.”

Behind the scenes, the project will also include replacements to the video components in the PNC Park scoreboard control room.

The Pirates engaged with Warrendale, PA-based, Mitsubishi Electric’s Diamond Vision Systems to oversee installation of the 83,000-pound scoreboard and other displays throughout the ballpark.

The team had previously announced a 2023 overhaul of concessions, including the installation of new equipment and the rebranding of some stands. Last year saw more extensive changes to the ballpark, including new social and group spaces, upgraded concessions, an emphasis on team history, and new kids areas.
