Following a weeklong clinic sponsored by the Bowling Proprietors Association of America (BPAA) and American Machine and Foundry (AMF), AMF staffer Ed Lubanski finds himself in a bowling match on live television. He has already completed one perfect 300 game, and now has the first 9 strikes in a row to begin the next game. We join the action as he is about to throw his first ball in the 10th frame, going for back-to-back 300 games. Originally broadcast live from Miami's Bowling Palace. 1959.

  • Lee Added I was watching this on TV and after Ed bowled his 7th strike in the first game I decided to drive to The Bowling Palace, about five minutes away to watch the match. He recived a lot of applause for the first 300, but when he repeated the score for the second game, the alley erupted with applause and congratulatory messages. Unfortunately, I believe the third game of the set was 157, still providing a great series score. Prior to this, the most exciting bowling night to me was in San Antonio, Texas watching the Budweiser and Falstaff team matches.
