Earl: The Greatest Bowler Of All Time Book Features:
Veteran bowling writer Barry Sparks of York, Pa., has authored the first comprehensive biography covering the life and accomplishments of PBA legend Earl Anthony, which is now in stock and can be ordered from BowlerX.
“EARL: The Greatest Bowler of All Time,” is Sparks’ 293-page compilation of more than 100 interviews with people who crossed paths with Anthony and includes more than two dozen vintage photos from Anthony’s career. Anthony, who held the PBA Tour titles record with 43 for several years before being surpassed by Walter Ray Williams Jr. (47), was selected as the PBA’s greatest player in the 2009 celebration of the 50 Greatest Players in PBA history.
Earl Anthony is one of sport’s most amazing success stories. He didn’t start bowling until he was 21. He didn’t go on the PBA Tour full-time until he was 31, an age when many athletes’ careers are ending. Yet, he forged a dominating PBA career that included 43 titles and three Player of the Year Awards. Arguably the greatest star to have every bowled, this book is in tribute to him.
