LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Construction will soon begin on Loeb Stadium's new video board.
The $578,000 project will be completed by the Fair-Play Corporation.
The board will stand 24 feet tall and is 43 feet wide.
It features more than 1 million pixels, allowing for high resolution video to be played.
Lafayette Parks Department Director of Operations Jon Miner said the board will enhance the in-game experience during baseball games.
"Instant replays up on the boards like you would experience if you're going to a high-level minor league game or major league game to pictures of the players and interaction with the fans during the course of the game," said Miner.
Miner said the new video board will be one of the highlight's of the new stadium.
"It's a really important piece. It's going to be something that you can immediately see," said Miner.
Miner said the video board could also be used to host family movie nights and during concerts.
The video board is scheduled to be completed in December.
