Citi Field Main Scoreboards

Citi Field Third Base View - Scoreboards

This is a view of the main scoreboards in centerfield, taken from the third base, field level area of Citi Field.

Citi Field scoreboard Jimmy Parque

Close-up view of the main scoreboard. As you can see, it is a crystal-clear LCD with outstanding brightness and contrast. Note that the player on the board is Jimmy Parque of St. John’s. I’m going to take a wild stab and assume this California kid is the son of former LHP Jim Parque, a UCLA alum who won 13 games for Jerry Manuel’s 2000, first-place White Sox.


Another close-up of the main scoreboard. As you can see, in addition to static images, it can also show live video, in HD. Pretty sweet.

    Pretty sweet, indeed. I wonder what’s featured on the back of those massive scoreboards.

    By the way, even though Jim Parque’s last pitch in the majors came back in 2003, he’s still only 33 years old today, which means if he has a kid playing in college now, he at least had to father the child when he was 15 years old. I guess stranger things have happened…

    Off topic question: how was the parking at the new stadium?

    Interesting point on the age … hadn’t realized the elder Parque was so young … maybe the Mets should bring him in as a LOOGY!

    The parking was OK for me, I parked underneath the Whitestone Expy, directly across from the Left Field entrance. $10.

    Jimmy Parque is my brother, son of our father Jim Parque not the professional player, but we are related, he is our 2nd cousin. We are from Pacifica, California. (Northern California not Southern).

    Send our best — and congrats — to your brother Jimmy, who is kicking some serious butt in the Big East!!!
