Baseball season is upon us and the stadiums nationwide will soon be filled with thousands of fans excited to root for their teams. But if your stadium does not have the appropriate signage to direct and inform your visitors, their ballgame experience can definitely strike out.
Bartush Signs is here to create major league scoreboards that hit a home run equally with both the players on the team and the audience cheering them on. Below, we outline some of the many important signs that every stadium should install.
Perhaps the most important sign in the whole ballpark is the scoreboard. No matter where a fan is sitting in the stadium, they should be able to easily read the score and know what inning the game is currently in.
At Bartush Signs, we have 75 years of expertise and the ability to design and build custom standard or digital scoreboards for your team. While the scoreboard serves an important role in keeping track of the points earned, it can also make an aesthetically pleasing statement. The hometeam name and logo or field name can adorn the top of the board and the digital screen can present an engaging and entertaining experience for the fans. The scoreboard also presents prime space for sponsors to advertise.
“Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, I don’t care if I never get back.”
What goes hand-in-hand with America’s favorite pastime? Food, of course! Every ballpark is filled with the traditional American ballgame classics such as the hotdog, cheeseburger, ice cream cone, soft pretzel, and peanuts and cracker jack, but your vendors won’t make any sales if they don’t have the appropriate menu boards and signage advertising the various food options.
At Bartush, we work with independent and franchise food service providers, both large and small, to help create mouthwatering visual menu boards that are easy to read for your fans. They can order their meal and get back to the game in no time!
With large crowds in attendance at every game and many locations spread throughout the venue, ballpark stadiums can be overwhelming to navigate, unless you have clear directional signage.
Stadiums should install signage with arrows pointing to common locations, such as the restrooms, first aid station, stadium shop, and food court, frequently throughout the sports venue. Directional signage and wayfinding signs should also be used to mark and point to the various seating sections and directing traffic in the parking lots. By doing this, fans will have a more enjoyable experience, it will reduce or eliminate confusion, and stadium employees will have to answer less directional questions that could be answered simply with a sign.
Safety and Instructional Signs
When fans attend a ballgame at their team’s stadium, they want to feel safe and secure. Safety and instructional signage placed throughout the stadium marking emergency exits and giving safety and security instructions will not only help fans feel more comfortable, but should an event actually take place, the signs will help everyone evacuate quickly and efficiently.
In order to manage and control safety risk, the stadium should also have rules posted throughout the venue including prohibited items, stair and guardrail use, and field rules. Every stadium has their own unique procedures and rules, as well as layout, so it’s important for every team to have custom signage that matches their needs.
