Floors Wins Season Title and Playoff Championship
In their 40th Anniversary season, Floors Unlimited Softball completed a perfect season, winning the regular season title with an unbeaten record, and winning the “A” Division Playoffs, with a 28-10 win over Shack (Kenny) in the Championship. This is not the first successful year for Floors. The offices at Carpet One Floors Unlimited in Shawano is full of trophies and memories of 40 years of successful softball and friendships.
“It started with a group of friends that wanted to play ball, and over the year’s we added some new friends to it and it makes it fun” Ryan Coffey said. Coffey hit a home run in the Championship game and was one of many that ended the game perfect at the plate. Coffey said this years roster has a large range of ages, but they all contribute.
Mike (Blades) Bloedorn has been on the team for more than half of Floors existence, completing his 24th season.
“I love the game and I love these guys” Bloedorn said. “I will keep playing until I can’t.”
“He just keeps coming back every year and hitting the ball, and he did that tonight” Coffey said of Bloedorn. ‘Our older guys played really well this year, We might have found the Fountain of Youth.”
Floors Unlimited Softball is planning a 40th Anniversary Celebration in the near future.
