Baseball team wants new scoreboard

March 20, 2007


Albany --  The South Georgia Peanuts are asking city commissioners to throw them some bones.  The minor league baseball team has been busy renovating Paul Eames stadium, but say they need the city's help to buy a new scoreboard.

The scoreboard that's at the field doesn't work, and parts can't even be found to bring it up to date. A new LCD scoreboard could cost the team $300,000 and they would like the city to fund most of that.  

"We just felt like, getting into the scoreboard issue, it was one issue we felt obligated to bring to the city and let them know that if we really want a joint long term solution, we need to work on this together," said South Coast League CEO Jamie Toole.  

Toole says the scoreboard can be used in concerts as well as high school and college games, so it would benefit more than just the team.
