How many people does it take to operate the scoreboard?

"About 24 people. From camera operators to graphics operators, audio, PA announcer. It's a lot of different people putting all of the parts together."

What do you think is the best part of the big screen?

"It's so crystal clear. You can see every little detail on it. . . . It's just the perfect picture."

What's the most fun part of your job?

"At the end of the day, after all the hard work, you're still coming to a baseball game every day. It's baseball. It's supposed to be fun. And it is."

Can you watch movies or play video games on the big screen?

"Absolutely. We show movies sometimes after games. We have all the connections to do anything with video games as well. We haven't tested it yet. We will be testing it at some point, I guarantee you. That'll be coming soon."
