The LED screen being built for the new Las Vegas Ballpark will be the biggest in the minors, according to the owners -- and bigger than five the screens of five big league teams.

A spokesperson for the Howard Hughes Corporation says the new LED video display will be nearly 4,000 square feet, the largest in Minor League Baseball.

The display would also be larger than the screens for the Toronto Blue Jays, Pittsburgh Pirates, Los Angeles Dodgers, Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles, according to a spokesperson.

Las Vegas Ballpark would also feature two ribbon displays and a gate entry display welcoming fans.

The screens are being designed by Daktronics, the South Dakota-based company that also worked on LED displays for Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta and Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The company is also behind several displays around Las Vegas, including those at T-Mobile Arena, Planet Hollywood Las Vegas and Thomas & Mack Center.

The Aviators' first game at the new ballpark is scheduled for Tuesday, April 9, against the Sacramento River Cats.
