Sports Parks Getting New Scoreboards

Some sports parks are getting new scoreboards.

Tulsa County Commissioner Stan Sallee says the county came to an agreement with company Youth Scoreboards.

“We struck an agreement that they would supply all the materials, the equipment, and put scoreboards in our fields at no cost to the county. It’s something that has an advertising element,” said Sallee.

Sallee said there are four new scoreboards in LaFortune Park now. The project may expand to O’Brien Park next.

This is an initiative that’s been tried in other towns.

“It’s a template that they’ve used in different municipalities: Broken Arrow, Bixby, Collinsville. This is the first time we’ve done anything like this with Tulsa County parks.”

There will be a ribbon cutting for the new boards tomorrow at 11 a.m. at LaFortune Park. Former NFL coach Barry Switzer will attend along with members of the Tulsa Drillers.
