Mikos Blue Monster
Thanks to a gift from Paul Mikos `66, a wall containing a manual scoreboard was installed in left field, complete with out-of-town scores reminiscent of some of Major League Baseball's classic ballparks in 2001.
The Mikos Blue Monster is a replica to Boston's Fenway Park's Green Monster. The Mikos Blue Monster stands 130-feet wide and 37-feet tall. Within the wall is one of only a handful of manual scoreboards in all of college baseball. The board itself isn't small, standing 18-feet tall and 46-feet wide. Complete with the LMU line score and the out-of-town West Coast Conference scores, the scoreboard combines some old-time baseball charm with today's modern technology.
The scoreboard has electronic balls, strikes and outs lights, along with electronic at-bat and hit/error identification. Every other component is tallied using 2-foot square aluminum scorecards slipped in behind the scoreboard manually. Giving Page Stadium additional character is a five-foot indent connecting the Blue Monster with the existing outfield fencing, similar to the odd outfield shapes of the classic Fenway Park in Boston and Minute Maid Park in Houston.
