At almost 4,000 square feet, the outfield display will be the largest Daktronics has installed in baseball’s minor leagues and will be top 25 in size for baseball in North America.

The massive display will feature a 13HD pixel layout and was installed in late 2018 by a joint venture of AECOM Hunt and PENTA Building Group.

“Pairing the largest Daktronics LED video display in the minor leagues with the new Las Vegas Ballpark will blow fans away,” said Rusty Lenners, Daktronics sales representative.

The display will be able to show one large image or be divided into multiple zones. From live video and instant replays to statistics and animations, the screen is expected to keep fans entertained at every event.

“Although the team has been in Las Vegas for 37 years, this upcoming season is the start of a new chapter for the Aviators, with a new name, a new stadium and a new affiliation,” said Logan. “It doesn’t get better than that," said Don Logan, president, and chief operations officer of the Las Vegas Aviators,

The Aviators start year one as the Triple-A afflilate of the Oakland Athletics this season with opening night scheduled in Vegas for April 9.
