With another bowling season starting soon, we should all get ready for another barrage of 300 games and 800 series.
As the Racine Bowling Association (RBA) Hall of Fame continues to grow yearly with average bowlers who have padded resumes due to equipment advances and ideal lane conditions, one man has yet to be inducted.
With his city bowling credentials alone, alone with a national doubles title and national top five team finish, this should merit automatic induction from the RBA board and hall members. There is no need for nomination and voting procedure.
Straight out of the Roth-Holman era with the power game of Roth, his name is Ray Batchkal. Not bowling in the Paradise West Castle Lanes circle of hall dominance should not be a hindrance to hall election.
Get it right. Betchkal was one of the first pure power bowlers in this city.
