PBA Legends Visit Bowl-A-Roll Lanes

Mark Roth and Johnny Petraglia Jr.

Roth, originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., attacked the Tour with a cranking, hard-throwing style which created a generation of imitators now prevalent throughout the sport. Never one to rest on his laurels, Roth not only surpassed the great Earl Anthony's all-time PBA earnings record on the 1987 Fall Tour, but also added his 33rd PBA title in the Greater Buffalo Open and won the No. 1 PBA invitational in Toronto. Roth won PBA Player of the Year honors in 1977, 1978, 1979 and 1984. He led the Tour in average in six different seasons, including a then-record 221.699 in '79. Another of his records is the eight titles he won in 1978, which he followed with seven titles in 1979. Is one of three players to earn both PBA and PBA50 Player of the Year honors. Finished his career with 34 Tour titles and $1,619,136 in earnings. He also owns two PBA50 Tour titles. 

Petraglia, a Brooklyn, N.Y., native, claimed his first PBA championship in the 1966 Ft. Smith (Ark.) Open. The lean lefthander had his career interrupted for a couple seasons when the Armed Forces called and sent him touring Vietnam instead of the pro bowlers circuit. He came back to fulfill his early promise and meet and surpass all of the goals and aspirations he had for himself. One of the highlights of his career was in 1971 when he finished the winter segment with three consecutive titles, all earned from the top-seeded position, climaxed by the Firestone Tournament of Champions triumph. Petraglia concluded that year with five titles and more than $85,000, a record earnings figure for the time. Petraglia won the 1977 BPAA U.S. Won the 1980 PBA National Championship for his 14th title and one that completed the cycle of major tournament victories. He was a long-time member of the Tournament Committee, he served as President of the PBA in 1979-80. He has been involved in untold amounts of charitable functions and efforts. Petraglia was the 25th person to be bestowed with the prestigious PBA Hall of Fame ring. In 2012, became the first player in PBA history to win a PBA Tour or PBA50 Tour in six different decades by capturing his eighth career PBA50 Tour title in the Dayton event.
