"It's a new scoreboard! And it's very nice," said Sophia Inclan.

That's right, who's winning, and by how much, is a lot easier to see now at Orange Grove Park.

"We will no longer have to look up at the old scoreboard...with mixed up numbers, 8, 0, 3, whatever," said Karissa Chabner Adams, League Commissioner.

The runs, the strikes the balls all lit up in red lights and courtesy of Ball Park Buns.

"We also replaced some broken and worn bleachers at another park, and planted a tree to provide shade for the fans," said Robert Villalobos, Ball Park Buns.

The field here in South Pasadena is one of several across the country Ball Park Buns selected for sponsorship.

"Before you know it they are already talking about installing it, and it's just been fantastic," said Coach Jon Takasugi.
