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.

(For comparison purposes, the old video board was 26 feet high and 45 feet wide.)

Here are updated photos, before-and-after style:

Before: Saturday, late morning:


After: Monday, early morning:
