The left-field wall at Fenway Park, affectionately known as the "Green Monster," is one of the most famous scoreboards in baseball. The wall has played a significant role in the history of the Boston Red Sox. The size of the wall has turned many potential home-run balls into long singles. Overall, the Green Monster enhances the experience of watching a game at Fenway. But when viewed as a performance management tool, the 37-foot wall comes up a bit short. Basic information about the game is displayed, including the inning-by-inning score and traditional key performance indicators like the balls and strikes for the current batter as well as runs, hits and errors. Additional information, including scores of other games, is useful but not entirely relevant to the current game in progress.
