Majors Field Scoreboard Instructions

Majors Field Scoreboard Instructions

Important:  When you are finished using the scoreboard, you MUST turn the power switch off at the electrical box that is below the scoreboard behind the centerfield fence in order for the scoreboard to charge when it is not in use.  The red button turns it on and off.  The “I” is the on position, and the “O” is the off position.  

Turning the scoreboard on:

  1. Behind the centerfield fence there is a combination lock.  Use the same code used to open the storage sheds to open this lock (please ask a coach if you do not know the code).


2. Use the key on the combination lock to open the padlock on the other side of the electrical box. 

3. Turn the scoreboard on by pushing the red button to the “I” position.  The “O” position is to turn the scoreboard off after use.

Keeping Score:

  • In the storage bin where the bases are stored, there is a case with two controllers in it that say “Nevco”.
    • One is to keep score, including innings, balls, strikes, and outs.
    • The other is used to track each pitcher’s pitch count.  
    • You can decide to use one or both.

  • Hold down the ON/OFF button and let the controller sync with the scoreboard.

Keeping the pitch count:  

  • Click on “HOME” or “GUESTS” to keep the pitch count for that team’s pitcher.  
  • Press the “+” button for every pitch thrown.  If you click the “+” button too many times, the pitch count can be increased, to decrease use the “-“ button.  
  • When the half inning is over, be sure to click “HOME” or “GUESTS” to ensure you are keeping the pitch count for the correct pitcher.  
  • When a pitching change occurs, be sure to use the “+” or “-“ button to move the pitch count back to zero.
  • When finished, hold down the “ON/OFF” button to turn the controller off.
  • Return the controller to the storage bin.

Managing the count:  

  • Press “BALL” or “STRIKE” as dictated by the umpire’s calls.  
  • After each at bat, you can clear the count by holding down the “BALL” button and “STRIKE” button until the count erases.

Outs:  

  • Push the “OUT” button down for each out recorded.  
  • Once the inning gets to three outs, hold the “OUT” button down until the outs erase on the scoreboard.

Keeping score:  

  • Depending on which team scores, you will either press “HOME” or “GUESTS” and then the “+” button to add runs to the score.  
  • You can correct the score by using the “-“ button.  
  • If you find you change the inning when you press the “+” or “-“ button, click on the “INNING SCORE” button and that will allow you to toggle to change the score.

Changing innings:  

  • Similar to keeping score, you will change the inning by using the “INNING SCORE” button and using the “+” or “-“ buttons to increase or decrease the inning.
  • When finished, hold down the “ON/OFF” button to turn the controller off.
  • Return the controller to the storage bin.
