Five Digital Billboards Around L.A. to Display Dodger Scores

The first National League playoff game has just begun and while tens of thousands of eyeballs are glued to the game right now, there are plenty who are not. Maybe they don't care or maybe they are waiting to watch it on Tivo at home. And if you're part of the latter group, some digital billboards might ruin it all for you.
In a creative move, one that critics might call a way to win the public's perception over the controversial digital billboards, game scores will be displayed on a number of CBS Outdoor digital billboards throughout the city for all NLCS games.
Find them (or avoid looking up) at Olympic Blvd at Granville, Cahuenga at Franklin, Westwood at Santa Monica Blvd, Third at La Cienega, and Santa Monica and Federal. Scores will be updated every 60 seconds.
The Dodgers say portable scoreboards are a time-old tradition. "Vin Scully recalls a childhood memory in New York of walking down the street in October and noticing a lopsided in-progress World Series score between the New York Giants and New York Yankees," a press release explains. "The line score was crafted on an oversized piece of butcher paper and displayed in the window."
