Even with a push for a new stadium, the Boise Hawks continue to invest in Memorial Stadium with plans to install a new video board and scoreboard in left field in time for the home opener June 20.

The video board will stand 15 feet, 9 inches tall and measure 37 feet, 9.5 inches wide (595 square feet). It’ll hold 648,000 LED lights and offer the club the ability to show live video, instant replays, video clips, statistics, graphics and sponsorship messages.

“We have strived each year to improve the fan experience at Memorial Stadium, and we felt this was a logical next step in bringing our in-park experience to another level,” said Jeff Eiseman, president of Agon Sports and Entertainment, which owns the Boise Hawks. “We are grateful that we have received so much community support for the Hawks in our two seasons of ownership and this was just another way we could say thank you and sincerely show our fans that we really do care and are working very hard to grow the Boise Hawks.”

Boise Hawks Assistant General Manager Mike Van Hise said if the Hawks get a new downtown stadium, the board could move with the club and serve as a secondary video board.
