Dick Weber and Team Bowling Tribute

Courtesy of the PBA, here is a sterling tribute to the late, great Dick Weber and also to a time when elite team bowling was far more popular than it is today. On March 12, 1958, the fabled Budweiser team of St. Louis shot a team series of 3858 that held the record for 38 years.

Here were the members of that team along with their individual series that fateful night: Don Carter (754), Ray Bluth (834), Pat Patterson (736), Tom Hennessey (759), Dick Weber (775). Remember that this was in the era of rubber bowling balls and relatively straight lines to the pocket.

The video is narrated by the late, great Earl Anthony.
