Schreiber’s Softball Weekend Hits a Homerun!

(LANCASTER, Pa.)- Despite scattered thunderstorms and even torrential downpour, 42 teams and close to 450 players came out the weekend of June 4-6 to support Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center’s 28th Annual Softball Weekend, raising over $60,000 for children with special needs. The event took place at Lancaster County Central Park and Froelich Park, Mountville, with the 2010 Ambassadors throwing the first pitch of the game on Friday night to kick-off 48 hours of old-fashion fun!

New this year was tournament play, with the winning team taking home the Softball Weekend trophy and the opportunity to defend their title in 2011. H.R. Ewell, Inc. and Groffdale Mennonite Church battled it out with H.R. Ewell, Inc. emerging as the 2010 champions late Sunday afternoon.

The top fundraising awards were once again given to the Manheim Struggling Farmers who contributed over $17,500 and their player, Barry Geib, who raised over $3,200 individually. Their support and enthusiasm for Schreiber Pediatric continue to grow year-to-year and the Center is thankful for their sincere dedication.
