        • Rhiengold Paid For the Scoreboard?

          This is the first time I have heard this. It must be true judging from the date of this photo.

            • That scoreboard would look great sitting over the bar in my den. :cap: I wonder where it is now, if it still exists?

                yes. as with many of the taxpayer funded multi-use buildings, scoreboards were not part of the public cost. too bad that's not the case now.
                franchises had to find sponsors that pony-ed up for the boards in exchange for display advertising space on or near the boards.
                the difference from present time is that in almost all of the cookie-cutters these were the only advertising messages that could be seen from the seating areas.
                most privately owned buildings did carry billboards etc..

                      • from 11/62, the field level seating tracks are visible.
                        the small tower to the right of the parking lot is the approximate location of the current home plate.

                            if this was used i'm sure it was cropped at the belts (no bare legs please!).
