CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Charleston’s minor league baseball stadium is tripling the size of its video board.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/2h2IpIz ) reports that workers installed the brand-new LED video board at Appalachian Power Park on Thursday.

The stadium is the home to the West Virginia Power, a Class A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates who start their next season at home April 6.

The 28 feet tall by 35 feet wide video board replaces the original screen installed when the ballpark was built in 2004. Its pixel display is nearly double that of the original, resulting in clearer and brighter quality.

The stadium is also building a new production suite. The costs for the upgrades total around $700,000.

The state Economic Development Authority loaned the team’s owners the money for the upgrades.
