3) A scoreboard that puts the "jumbo" in jumbotron
Citi Field's scoreboard got a huge upgrade this year. Measuring in at 17,400 square feet, the video board is the largest in Major League Baseball, and four times the size of the one it replaced.
It doesn't matter if you're behind the dugout or in the nosebleeds, every fan that attends a game at Citi Field will have information overload at all times (in a good way). Just like the Dallas Cowboys wowed NFL fans when they unveiled their enormous jumbotron, Steve Cohen has set a new standard for Major League Baseball.
The scoreboard not only enhances the gameday experience for fans at the ballpark, it serves as a sign that Cohen is willing to spend to make the Mets a first-class organization. As the New York Post put it, "The New York Mets' Scoreboard Is So Laughably Gigantic (and Beautiful!)"
As a lifelong Mets and Nintendo fan, let's just say that I loved the team unveiling their new toy with a round of Mario Kart.
The scoreboard is the most prominent of the improvements to Citi Field's gameday experience, but far from the only one. Since Cohen has taken over the team, he has partnered with Samsung to modernize Citi Field and set a new standard. Some fruits of this alliance include tripling the number of cameras at the stadium, doubling the number of slo-mo replay systems, and adding a digital display to the Jackie Robinson rotunda.
