Installation of Face Lit Channel Letters and Digital Scoreboard for Philadelphia Phillies

Citizens Bank Park is the oldest ballpark in the National League East, opening in 2004 and preceding Nationals Park (2008), Citi Field (2009), Marlins Park (2012) and SunTrust Park (2017). Subjectively, it remains one of the better ballparks in baseball, particularly with sightlines for fans. The Phillies have big plans for the park to improve the fan experience, upgrade security and more!

Family-Friendly, “The Yard”, was created to attract more young people to the ballfield. Philadelphia Sign was pleased to install a scaled-down version of the team’s “PhanaVision” scoreboard for the wiffle ball field. We partnered with Daktronics to complete the signage for the ribbon cutting and opening day.

The 13.5’ x 5’ Phillies logo (with face lit channel letters on steel supports) is located above the digital scoreboard and was erected by the Philadelphia Sign install team.

The goal of the project was to design, fabricate and successfully install a digital scoreboard that mimics the official Phillies scoreboard. This completes the interactive baseball experience that gets kids in the game.

“The Yard” allows kids to hit wiffle balls and run the bases on the Citizens Bank “Phan Field” located in right center field. The Phillies organization is focused on bringing fans back to the 15-year-old ballpark, a few seasons removed from the World Series-winning heyday of Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Ryan Howard and Cole Hamels.
