Look: FOX unveils new scorebug for MLB playoffs

MLB FOX scorebug

FOX has had the same scorebug for MLB games for the past several years, but the network has created a new design for the 2021 playoffs.

A new scorebug will be used beginning with ALDS Game 1 between the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros on FOX Sports 1. The graphic features 3D bases, bigger font and a lot more color. Check it out:

As you can see, the new scorebug is a lot less simple than the old one. That tends to not go over well with fans. The reaction to the change was quite predictable.

There’s a lot going on with the new scorebug, which is why fans are going to complain. It’s hard to sell viewers on change as it is, let alone making a familiar graphic more complex.

Believe it or not, fans don’t always bash networks for changing their graphics. CBS seemed to get it right when they unveiled a new scorebug during the Super Bowl earlier this year.
