The Detroit Tigers will have a big new scoreboard to go with their big new first baseman this season.

While Prince Fielder might be the biggest new attraction for Tigers fans, he won't be the biggest new addition to Comerica Park.

The Detroit Tigers have hired Daktronics, Inc. to design, manufacture and install a high-definition video upgrade to Comerica Park. Scheduled to be complete prior to Opening Day 2012, the integrated system will feature one of the largest LED video displays in Major League Baseball and all of sports.

Incorporated into the existing left field structure, Daktronics will install a new state-of-the-art light emitting diode (LED) video display. Measuring approximately 48 feet high by 127 feet wide, the video display will utilize the latest in LED technology offering excellent clarity and contrast of video images. This technology and its control system allow for complete flexibility in programming. The video board can operate as a single giant display or be divided into multiple zones (windows) to show a wide variety of statistics, information, graphics, animation and live and recorded video.

An additional 5 foot high by nearly 100 foot wide LED display will be positioned below the main video display to be used primarily for pitcher statistics.
