The 2023 Major League Baseball season starts tomorrow and stadiums have been prepared new upgrades to wow fans. New York Mets partnered with Samsung to equip Citi Field with the largest scoreboard across all professional ballparks – it’s over three times larger than the old one.

You know a display is big when it’s measured in square feet rather than inches. The new centerfield scoreboard has a surface area of 17,400ft² (1,616m²). There is also an additional 6,900ft² (640m²) display on the back, which is so tall and big that it can be seen from the highway that passes by the park.

The centerfield scoreboard has a 10mm pixel pitch (the distance between pixels) and can show 4K clips like instant replays and close-ups of the players, as well as game stats, interactive updates and so on.

While this is the centerpiece and will get the most attention, displays across the whole ballpark are being upgraded. Work will be complete by opening day on April 6 and includes a number of outfield displays, exterior signage and even the concession stands are getting digital menu boards.

“Samsung’s innovative technology at Citi Field will expand the standard for what fans expect when entering the country’s best stadiums. Over a two-year period, we’ve transformed a once static signage environment to an all-digital experience. While working with the Mets, we’ve been able to push the boundaries of what is possible by delivering more creative and unique experiences for its fan base,” said David Phelps, Vice President, Product Management, Display Division, Samsung Electronics America.
