Yankee Stadium Goes Big With New Jumbotron
With spring training now in full gear and the regular season just around the corner, baseball fans have plenty of reasons to look forward to the 2009 season, 3D-enhanced baseball cards being among them. Although New York Yankees fans had to say goodbye to the historic Yankee Stadium last year, they'll be pleased to find one of the largest TV screens in the world installed next door at the new $1.3 billion Yankee Stadium.
The Mitsubishi Diamond Vision LED display spans a massive 6,000 square feet. The huge, high-definition outdoor screen, made up of 8,601,600 LEDs, will be able to pump out four separate video feeds at a time, and can even do live picture-in-picture. Wired also reports that the new stadium will contain over 1,400 other video screens, so you won't have to worry about missing a play if you get the snack bar munchies or need to run to the bathroom. Fans should have no problem seeing the towering 60-foot-tall screen, although the action on the field might be harder to discern (especially for those who can't afford to pay $600 for a decent seat).
