SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Syracuse Chiefs are sporting some fancy new technology at their home ballpark. Alliance Bank Stadium unveiled a new video scoreboard Monday.
The scoreboard is controlled through a computer system and with the click of a button, stats go straight out to fans. Each pixel on the board is individually controlled so that the board can be sectioned off to show the box score on the bottom while also showing headshots and advertisements.
The board also has the ability to show replays and videos on the full screen and that's something Chief Video Director Kevin Barry says he thinks will really grab the public's attention.
"There is no secret baseball is one of the slower professional sports, so having something like a video board that we can show clips between pitches or in between plays or a way to show replays really quickly when someone makes a great play really adds to the overall atmosphere because that's what you come to see," Barry said.
The Chiefs are just starting an eight game home stand, so fans have plenty of chances to get out and see the new scoreboard.
