The Minnesota Twins introduced three new Daktronics narrow pixel pitch displays in their club space behind a bar. The displays feature 2.5-millimeter line spacing to make a premium impression on Twins fans in this entertainment space at Target Field. Mounted directly next to each other, the displays follow the architecture behind the bar area to form a semi-square shape that features one obtuse and one acute angle where the displays meet. The unique configuration draws additional attention as it engages and entertains fans away from their seats.
