(SALISBURY,MD)-The Delmarva Shorebirds are wrapping up a seven-game road stand on Wednesday night.

This offseason has been year three of the renovations at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium.

A new $750,000 dollar scoreboard now sits in the outfield.Shorebirds General Manager Chris Bitters said the scoreboard needed to be upgraded.

Another big change at the ballpark is the seating. It is now a reserved seat stadium instead of having general admission seating.

"So trading that in for reserved seat stadium gives you an advantage if you want a great like a concert, the earlier you buy the better the seat," said Bitters.

Bitters said keeping the fans that have supported the team for years as well as growing the fan base is a top priority.

"The fan experience is what we are about and that is what they come for and at the minor league level," said Bitters.

For 21 seasons the Shorebirds have drawn about 250,000 fans.Bitters expects with the additional improvements more fans will be attending.
