Past Testimonials

Mr. Lenz,

Truly enjoyed the showcase this weekend / thanks for allowing us to be a part of it!! Would love to join again next year for 9U.

– Steve Bovinett, Head Coach SWIBL – SOUTH


Hello Mr. Lenz,

Just wanted to take a quick second to “Thank You” for the weekend you put on for the 8U All Star Elite Showcase!  In opening ceremonies you said this was about the kids and the experience for them, My son Ryker Benz had the best Experience as did the rest of our family together! You can not overstate how important that time was and how much fun he had, when he is my age he will still think of this weekend and have a smile! I appreciate all you have done to make that one of his memories and hope we will get the chance to participate in other tournaments in the future at Lenz Fields!

Best Regards,

Rick Benz


Mike Williams here. I coach the Forsyth Fire ball team and more recently I had the opportunity to help out with the 8U Eastern Illinois team this past weekend.  It was a great event and great opportunity for the boys (and the dads).  Keep up the good work and I appreciate the opportunity.  Looking forward to gettback over there next spring.  Thanks again.
