The Scoreboard


One of the main features of any ballpark is its scoreboard. It’s a focal point for the spectator and provides a wealth of information to the fans. Most scoreboards are electronic. However, in the two oldest ballparks in use (and by far the best parks to see a game) Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field in Chicago there is a more antiquated method for keeping score: the manual scoreboard. This year marks 75 years that Wrigley has had their scoreboard and it has a fascinating history as this Chicago Sun Times article explains.
