The huge and bright new scoreboard ranks as one of the major attractions at Nationals Park. The graphics, color and contrast add to the game experience. It's definitely an upgrade from RFK's dated and distant scoreboard. Sadly, as previously reported, the operator(s) do not appear to have been part of the upgrade.
Over the last few games, we've seen the pitch counts for the starting pitchers continue to ring up despite the fact that relievers were on the mound. Information on hitters sometimes shows up well into an at bat.
Also, for those of us who cannot seem to keep a wristwatch, it would be nice if the brand new "Curly W" clock worked. According to this massive timepiece, Saturday afternoon's game started at 6:30 PM. The rain delay was rather long, but not quite THAT long.
Finally, the in-game weather report and trivia question featuring Sue Palka could be improved. The question one night was "How many teams have worn the letter C on their caps." We were given the answer in terms of the number of teams, but the actual teams were not listed. I'm thinking both Chicago teams, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Colorado. Who else? On Friday, the question was "What's the record for the most shutouts by one pitcher against one team in one season?" The answer turned out to be 6. But who was the pitcher? We weren't told. And if we were, the scoreboard would probably have his pitch count wrong.
