On the Beat: Citizens Bank Park Upgrades Video Screen

PBR - The Phillies have announced that Citizens Bank Park will have a new high definition video screen for the 2011 season.

The HD screen, which will replace the old one in its spot under the Phillies sign in left field, will measure 76 feet high and 97 feet wide, making it the largest such screen in the National League.

"We're truly excited to bring the HD experience to our fans," Broadcasting and Video Services Director Mark DiNardo said. "The new technology and dramatically larger image will bring our fans closer to the action than ever."

Construction has already begun on the transition. The Phillies old mega-screen will be moved to the team's spring training facility in Clearwater. The likely first glimpse that Phillies fans will be able to get of this massive new screen live will be the On-Deck series against the Pirates on March 29-30.
