Officials mark new start for Route 22 store.
Springfield officials joined members of the business community and the public to mark the grand re-opening of Sports Authority this weekend.
Springfield Mayor Ziad Shehady and Committee member Marc Krauss joined Store Manager Mike Maresca and about a dozen student athletes from Springfield Public Schools.
In an email, Shehady commended Sports Authority for acting as a gracious neighbor and taking an active role with the community by supporting civic and school groups and sponsoring local events.
