Check Out The New Yankee Stadium’s Giant Screen – There’s No Such Thing As Too Big

By Andrew Liszewski

Given the Yankee’s new stadium has a price tag of $1.3 billion, it’s not surprising that some of that money has been spent on what has to be one of the largest ‘TVs’ in the world. The image you see here was taken by a New York CBS affiliate and shows an early test of the stadium’s 103 by 58 foot (that’s almost 6,000 square feet) Mitsubishi Diamond Vision LED display. It’s composed of 8,601,600 LEDs and besides being HD it can also display up to 4 video feeds at one time, and do picture-in-picture.

Unfortunately some fans are worried that the new screen might actually be too big, and that it could become a distraction or overshadow what’s happening on the field, but apparently they’ve never sat through an entire baseball game before. As far as I’m concerned, the more distractions, the better.

    Dude, I think you're overlooking something here and that is, everything is bigger in Texas. The Dallas Cowboys will have not only one but two 180' X 50' screens as well as two endzone screens at a mere 48' X 27'

    The Kansas City Royals already have a 100ft X 85ft screen in their outfield. It is a thing of beauty.
