Thomas Harter, Battle Creek, MI - Part One


From one of the historic documents we're able to get at the Minnesota Historic Museum, we found a text written by one of the main guys behind Cosom Hockey... This is how it all started you guys ;-) Hey just look at those sticks used - they do not look like Floor Hockey sticks do they? And yes the typical Floorball ball design was used in this game as they took it outdoors too... But indoors they kept on using the puck.

We will share it here as a picture of a scanned document - this is part one of what Mr. Tom Harter had to say some almost 50 years ago. Part 2 and 3 are on its way... too.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
