The Bloomer baseball program is going to really miss these seven young men. They were great representatives of Bloomer High School and the city of Bloomer throughout their high school careers. They have made significant contributions to the baseball program over the past four years. Several of them have been varsity baseball players since their freshman or sophomore year. They learned on the fly and experienced the ups and downs of what it takes to compete at the varsity level with such a young roster. They stayed committed to getting better and always had a great work effort and continued to improve. Those efforts culminated last season when they helped lead the Blackhawks to their first regional championship in ten years. We were all looking forward to their senior season and seeing what else they could accomplish. Unfortunately they weren’t able to get that last chance to finish their baseball careers on the field. As a coach I’m incredibly proud of them and I’m going to choose to remember all the great memories we made as a team and look forward to following the next chapter in their lives!
