Springfield's collegiate summer baseball franchise, the Champion City Kings, will conclude its inaugural season next week. The team has made a good impression so far on fans and city officials.

Last night was a good example of the team's progress: The Kings unveiled a brand new $200,000 video scoreboard prior to their game against the Richmond River Rats. The scoreboard is 34 feet tall and features an 11-foot-high video monitor.
