Rockies Introduce 8,369-Square-Foot, Mountain-Shaped Scoreboard

The Colorado Rockies have unveiled a massive new scoreboard for Coors Field.

According to the team, the monitor is 258 percent larger than its predecessor at 8,369 square feet. For good measure, it's designed to resemble a mountain.

If the artist rendering is any indication, the scoreboard will be ready for April 6 when Colorado plays its home opener against the Atlanta Braves. The dazzlingly clear screen predicts a strong offensive performance and home run from third baseman Nolan Arenado.

The Rockies snapped a seven-year playoff drought last year but lost the National League Wild Card Game to the Arizona Diamondbacks. If they have this big a budget for stadium amenities, perhaps they can purchase a rotation upgrade to counteract Coors Field's hitting-friendly environment.
