Formetco Sports was recently selected by the Bowling Green Hot Rods, a minor league baseball team in Bowling Green, Ky., to install two new LED video scoreboards. The installation is scheduled for early March 2019, and the new scoreboards will be ready for use on opening day in April 2019.
“Formetco Sports is excited to partner with the Hot Rods on its scoring and video system upgrades for the stadium,” said Blake Bearden, Formetco Sports sales manager. “The FTX 13.3 technology will provide a new level of screen clarity for fans, and our integrated control systems and software will take the fan experience to the next level with player stats from MiLB and new graphics that will wow the crowds.”
The main LED video scoreboard is approximately 35-feet tall by 56-feet wide and the outfield LED video scoreboard is approximately 6-feet 3-inches tall and 68-feet wide. Both LED video scoreboards utilize Formetco’s new 13.3 mm TRUE pixel technology that provides incredible picture quality. The boards have the capability to provide dynamic zones for scoring, live video, advertising, player statistics and fan-interaction graphics.
“Throughout the entire process of selecting a new video board provider, Formetco Sports and its team continued to impress us. They answered each question quickly, making the decision easy for us,” said Eric Leach, COO and general manager of the Bowling Green Hot Rods. “Blake and his team invited us to the Formetco facility to view first-hand some of the boards the company has installed previously. Formetco Sports is top-notch across the board, from stadium boards to the College Football Hall of Fame boards. It is clear that Formetco Sports will be leading the technology change in Minor League Baseball.”
