ORLANDO, FL—The University of Central Florida Knights upgraded its baseball stadium, John Euliano Park, just ahead of the 2022 season. The centerpiece of the stadium’s renovation is an EMPIRE™ Exterior LED video scoreboard manufactured by SNA Displays.
“So far everyone has been really excited and positive [about the videoboard]. We were in need of a major upgrade and this has been a great addition that our fans have loved so far,” said UCF baseball head coach Greg Lovelady, who recently led the Knights to a weekend series sweep at home. “Facilities are always a big part of the recruiting process and comes into how the ballpark looks, the experience the players get, and how it affects our crowd.” Other recent enhancements to the ballpark include upper-deck seating, dugout enhancements, and a new sound system.
The ballpark’s new LED videoboard is 22’10” high and 35’8″ wide and is positioned just beyond the fence in right-centerfield. The display employs a 10 mm pixel pitch and a resolution of 696 x 1,088 pixels, giving the 815-square-foot video screen more than 750,000 total pixels.
American & Interstate Signcrafters, which has key locations in Florida and New York, installed the digital display.
“It’s always a challenge when taking down existing signage and retrofitting a new display to the existing structure,” said Nick Gioia, project manager for SNA Displays. “But we had a great team of engineers, inspectors, and installers to make it work. During installation, we also had to deal with daily batting practice while working in the outfield – bombs away!”
