In a rare act of frugality, the owners of Yankee Stadium didn't go for the biggest and baddest HDTV screen when they opened their new park in April 2009. Instead, they opted for a screen that at the time was the third-largest screen in the world.

Similar to the Braves, the Yankees also opted for a Mitsubishi Diamond Vision screen. This one, however, measures 101 by 59 feet, or 5,925 square feet (550.5 square meters) of display area. If you were to measure this screen diagonally like your desktop's monitor, you'd be looking at 117 feet (or 1,404 inches) of high-definition action [source: Fermoso]. What's more, it can project up to four simultaneous HD images. Believe it or not, this screen is still just a pint-sized version by contemporary standards.
