TESTIMONIALS FROM THE 2016 JUNIOR HIGH ALL STATE SHOWCASE:
On behalf of my husband and I and especially my daughter, we’d like to “THANK YOU” for selecting my daughter to partake in this inaugural event ! This entire experience has been awesome for our daughter. Thank you also for choosing her to throw out the first pitch ! That was such an honor for her !
Nancy, Larry and Abby Bukantis – Ottawa Shepard
Thank you Barry! The tournament was put together very well. This was our second year here and way to take it up a notch. It was a pleasure ending our fall Jr high season, at your facilities. Rance met some great people and he always enjoys playing “the turf”.
Mark & Jill Bryant Parents of Rance Bryant – Schlarman Academy
I enjoy shooting girls softball, and, thanks to the Umpires allowing me on the field, I was able to get Great Shots from shooting on the field. There’s no way that I could get these kind of shots from thru the fence. You have a very nice facility for softball and baseball, it was a fun weekend and one could not have asked for better weather.
Bill Miener – Father of Sam Meiner from Highland
I would like to say that my girls loved Coach Jamie Martin (Team W.Central), he worked hard with the girls and had fun with them too. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I can’t wait to see this program excel in the future years to come.
Thanks – Zoe and Zaylei Evans’ mom, Kandice Kunkel – Winchester
Thank you so much for adding softball this year and for allowing me to coach the East team. I truly had an awesome experience and the girls were so great! I can’t wait to watch this tournament grow and to hopefully coach again in the future. Thank you again!
Christine Dickerson – Coach of the East Team – Softball
I think overall the weekend was an amazing experience for the girls. I think it was a big success and Tinley was honored to play.
Thank you and have a great day,
Autumn Risinger – Mattoon
This was the first time boys got picked from our school to attend the all state showcase and our boys had so much fun. They made it to state and brought home 4th and to attend this and go into championship game 4-0 was a big accomplishment for the boys. Thank you Lenz field for a great weekend
Chrissy Freitas – Bourbonnais UGC
What an awesome experience this was for my son. Everything was extremely organized and well put-together. Excellent competition and most of all the boys had a great time thank you again for your hospitality It was greatly appreciated.
Bob Zoelzer – Edwardsville Lincoln
Great tournament weekend for the 8th grade teams that I watched. No teams were stacked with players and they all seemed very well balanced. This was our first time playing in this event and we had a great time getting to see some of the top middle school talent from across the state.
Brett Johnson – Germantown Hills
I think this weekend was a great experience for all of the athletes. It was great to see kids that compete locally against each other – team up to play that broader scope of players. We visit Lenz Field often for tourneys and always great facilities to play on.
Lisa Colon – Collinsville
This is our second year attending this event. It has been a great experience for both of my sons. The All State Showcase was very well organized and provided a perfect opportunity for my son to meet new people and play some baseball.
Gregg Bradshaw -Pekin-St. Joseph’s

Good morning all,

I would liked to also express my heartfelt thank you to coaches Donovan and Hickman,(who with a days make that a few hours of practice was able to bring this group of wonderful players together as a team and new found friends!!) I would also like to say great Job to Sean Walker and Team Lenz!! This will be an experience and memory that these young men will cherish for a lifetime!!
Please share with your sons how truly honored we were to share such a special moment and time of their lives with them!!
Best of luck to all of them in their future endeavors in whatever they choose!!
Delroy A. Robinson
Sean, our family wanted to say Thank You to you and Lenz Field for holding the Jr. High All Star Tournament this past weekend.
Rece had a wonderful time, enjoyed playing back at Lenz Field, meeting new kids, and simply playing baseball!
He was one of the young men selected to the All Tournament Team and as parents we appreciate you recognizing his hard work and dedication to his sport.
A question: is it possible to find out who recommended Rece for the All Star team? We assume his coach, Ron Smith, did. But if it was someone else, Rece would like to send them a Thank You. The experience was beyond anything Rece could have expected.
Thank you again for a great weekend!
Michael and Jackie George
I wanted to send a thank you note to yourself and all of the staff at Lenz Field for putting on such a great event. Everything was done with amazing detail; the opening ceremonies, player recognition, tournament, and obviously the facility speaks for itself. The whole weekend was a blast and it was a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet and talk with players from around the state and their families. Speaking personally for my son, he cherished the opportunity to share a dugout with players he would normally be playing against in summer tournaments. Thanks for recognizing these players and the immense amount of hardwork and dedication that they put into this sport. Everyone involved in the event in any way, shape, or form deserves a pat on the back and a big thank you today.
Coach Walker , just wanted to say “THANK YOU” for a memorable weekend last weekend. That was my 1st trip to Lenz and I ( like my assistants ) were impressed . The tournament was very well organized and a great chance to see some of the best young athletes in all of Illinois.. What an experience for a young athlete . Thanks again. Jerry McDowell
