For a while all of our gadgets were getting smaller and smaller. Lately, though, that trend appears to be reversing. Just look at the iPhone 6 Plus or the new 84-inch Microsoft Surface Hub. Now, baseball's New York Mets are following suit with a giant new scoreboard.
The new scoreboard is going to be 54 feet tall and 105 feet wide, making it one of the top 10 largest scoreboards in all of Major League Baseball.
The new scoreboard is 62% larger than the one that originally sat in Citi Field. The Mets have released a preview mock up, so you can see how it compares to the old board.
In addition to its enormous size, the Mets are also saying that it will feature one of the first 13HD LED centerfield video board displays in baseball and boast 1.5 million pixels.

“As we look forward to a great season on the field in 2015, these significantly bigger and higher resolution video boards are state-of-the-art in size and LED technology and re-inforce our commitment to provide our fans a superior experience when attending games at Citi Field,” Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said in a press announcement.
If you want to see the board in person, it will be ready for the Mets' first game of the season on April 13.
