Good Monday morning, Cleveland. We woke up to some great baseball news today: Progressive Field is installing a new scoreboard for the 2016 season.

Here's the word straight from the horse's mouth:

The new scoreboard, manufactured and installed by Daktronics, will feature premier high-definition technology for every fan at Progressive Field. It measures 59 feet high by 221 feet wide, amounting to 13,000 square feet of active display area.

The project includes other boards throughout the ballpark which will enhance fans’ experience by providing greater access to statistics, scores from around the league and sound quality. The project also includes a state of the art new sound system to be installed for the 2016 season.

“The new boards will significantly enhance our fans’ experience at Progressive Field,” said Neil Weiss, the Indians Senior Vice President of Technology and Chief Information Officer. “This project increases our ability to deliver a world-class in game experience, delivering stats, highlights and player profiles in large, high-definition formats.”
The scoreboard revamp will take place alongside the Phase Two renovations, which include a new club behind home plate, new local specialty concessions throughout the ballpark, and more.
