Lancaster-Lebanon League baseball coaches have released their All-League team, with a small change for the 2019 season.
Nineteen players were selected this spring, adding an additional three spots to the “Sweet 16” team that had been chosen in previous seasons.
Thirteen L-L schools are represented on the list, led by league and District Three Class 6A silver medalist Hempfield, which had five players selected. Lampeter-Strasburg and Manheim Central each had two players named to the team.
This year’s squad features two catchers, four infielders, three outfielders and two pitchers, with eight utility players being recognized for their work both on the mound and across the diamond.
