Baseball Scoreboard

In February of 2012, the Gene Bicknell Sports Complex was hit with strong winds that made their way through the south part of Pittsburg. The storm destroyed the Pittsburg State softball scoreboard and the replacement board was covered by insurance, however the Pittsburg State baseball scoreboard was not damaged enough to be replaced. With the damage done to the scoreboard in 2012 along its age and obsolete technology, there is a need for a new scoreboard.

The 2013 Pittsburg State University baseball team had a season full of accomplishments. The team qualified for the MIAA Postseason Tournament for the first time since the 2004 season, making it the ninth all-time appearance for Pitt State baseball in the tournament. The Gorillas then advanced to the final four of the 2013 MIAA Postseason Tournament and finished the season with a 29-24 overall record.

Baseball Scoreboard

With the addition of a new baseball scoreboard there will be an increased amount of advertising space available. The new scoreboard design will allow those interested in advertising to secure space on both the baseball and softball scoreboards as a package deal, or simply purchase advertising space on one of the two scoreboards. The new baseball scoreboard will have four 6' x 2' spaces for sponsors to purchase. Click the download along the side to see what the new scoreboard will look like!

Those interested in purchasing advertising space on the new baseball and/or softball scoreboard at Gene Bicknell Sports Complex can contact Director of Strategic Partnerships and Community Outreach, Marissa Poppe at (620) 235-4148 to discuss this opportunity further.
