ARLINGTON, Texas – The international Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame (IBMHOF) is offering bowling fans the chance to have a piece of history from last weekend’s Professional Bowlers Association Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which kicked off with a celebration and exhibition at the museum.
The online museum store (BowlingMuseum.com/Shop) is offering a signed poster of Tommy Jones, a 2020 PBA Hall of Fame inductee and the PBA Hall of Fame Classic winner, and a limited-edition Bowling Hall of Fame bowling pin signed by Jones and fellow PBA Hall of Fame inductees Rob Glaser and Mike Slade. The limited-edition poster comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Prior to last Saturday’s induction ceremony of the 2020 PBA Hall of Fame class, the IBMHOF hosted a celebration that featured the opening of its latest exhibit, featuring the new members of the PBA Hall of Fame.
On Sunday, Jones returned to the International Bowling Campus and captured the PBA Hall of Fame Classic title at the International Training and Research Center, rolling a 300 game in the title match to beat top-seed Darren Tang, 300-237. Jones earned his 20th career PBA Tour title in winning the first event of the 2020 Go Bowling PBA Tour season.
While there have been 27 televised perfect games in PBA Tour history, Jones was just the third bowler to have a 300 game in a title match of a televised event. The PBA Hall of Fame Classic finals were televised on FS1.
Bob Benoit (1988 PBA Quaker State Open) was the first to have a 300 game in a televised title match, while IBMHOF President and Chairman Mike Aulby had a perfect game in the title match at the 1993 PBA Wichita Open.
Earlier this month, bowling fans had the opportunity to see the latest additions to the IBMHOF’s satellite museum at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nevada.
The NBS, which will play host to the 2020 United States Bowling Congress Open Championships starting March 21, had its grand reopening following renovations to the facility that is celebrating its 25th year.
