Video board update: halfway there.
Installation of the new video board began on Saturday around 7 a.m., and by the time the Astros front office staff arrived to work Monday morning, around half of the work was already done.
If everything stays on schedule, the entire board — 54 feet high by 124 feet wide — will be installed by the end of the week.
