The 11th annual Lititz Summer Showcase brought about 150 teams to Lititz last weekend, including a couple from as far away as San Diego, California.

Under the watchful eyes of college coaches, who made their way to the Warwick High School campus on Friday night, U16 and older players who are hopeful of being recruited put their talents on display on the Grosh Stadium turf field. Vehicles with license plates from Florida, New York, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey filled the nearby parking lot.

Rain greeted players, coaches, spectators and officials on Saturday afternoon, but it didn’t dampen the efforts of the players, as friends and family cheered arm-by-arm in chairs packed along the sidelines.

There was plenty of buzz at Rothsville’s Forney Field, Elizabeth Township Park, Linear Park, Hummer Turf Farm near Root’s and Foundation Field in Manheim Township, along with five pitches on the Warwick High School and Middle School pitches, as squads battled head-to-head for the upper hand in pool play.
