FOX Sports just keeps adding good news for PBA fans

Ads


As the debut of the Go Bowling! PBA Tour rapidly approaches its debut on FOX, FOX Sports continues to add good news to its budding relationship with the PBA.

First, FOX has created a bowling page on FoxSports.com, its official website, that will be filled with PBA player interviews and other news of interest to bowling fans. The website presence means additional availability of PBA news to millions of sports fans around the world, and includes a link to pba.com where fans can find all kinds of additional schedule, background and statistical information.

Secondly, FOX has announced an extensive schedule of re-airs of PBA telecasts, including 14 re-broadcasts of Sunday’s PBA Clash on FS1 and FS2. That means that fans who may miss the initial telecast will have ample opportunities to watch the shows when they re-air. Because the schedules are so extensive, it’s always best to check your local listings for dates and times for those telecasts.

Third, a few FOX stations have exercised their options to pre-empt Sunday’s PBA Clash telecast from its regularly-scheduled 2:30 or 4:30 p.m. time (depending on your home market) and will air the show at a different time. A handful of the 210 markets with FOX stations have elected to re-schedule the telecast.

Included are: Atlanta, Augusta, Charlotte, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Green Bay, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Tampa. Fans in those markets should check their local listings for the re-scheduled air time on FOX, and also check their FS1 and FS2 channels for PBA Clash air times.

Fourth, a video preview of Sunday’s PBA Clash is now available on PBA’s YouTube channe1 if you’d like to get a sneak peek at the show by clicking here.

Finally, the PBA Tour will be available in a variety of other outlets, including satellite radio. Viewers can live stream the PBA shows on the FOX Sports app, through the FOX and FS1 streams. The shows will be available on desktop at FOXSports.com and through the app store or on connected devices including Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Xbox One and Roku.

In addition, all programs will be available on FOX Sports on SiriusXM channel 83 on satellite radios and on the SiriusXM app.

The stepladder finals will be televised on Sunday, Jan. 6, at 11 a.m. EST from the ITRC in Arlington.

Proceeds from raffle ticket sales will benefit the museum’s Frame4Frame Film Restoration Initiative which is intended to restore and preserve the IBM/HF’s irreplaceable collection of history bowling films.

PBA Regional Update: End-of-season events result in two first-time titlists

As the PBA Regional season draws to a close for 2018, two weekend tournaments resulted in first-time title winners in the PBA South and combined Central-East Regions:

Nate Garcia (left) of Port St. Lucie, Fla., celebrated his 24th birthday Sunday by winning his first PBA Regional title, defeating PBA Tour veteran Tom Daugherty of Riverview, Fla., 230-214, to win the PBA Reality Check/CareHawk Classic at Sawgrass Lanes in Tamarac, Fla.

Garcia, the number four qualifier for the stepladder finals with a 17-game pinfall total of 3,490, easily defeated PBA rookie Mike Coffey of Melbourne, Fla., 180-151, in the opening stepladder match. He then eliminated Andro Simounet of Lake Wales, Fla., 202-179, to advance to the championship match of the PBA South Region’s final tournament of 2018. Garcia pocketed $2,800.

In Warren, Ohio, Jay Davis (Center, with Warren Harley-Davidson owner Paula Burkley and GM Roger Bower) of Silver Spring, Md. defeated John Brockway of Hudson, Ohio, 186-182, to win his first PBA Regional title in the Warren Harley-Davidson Central/East Challenge at Freeway Lanes of Warren Sunday.

Davis, who earned $1,500, downed Larry Woomer of State College, Pa., 225-157, and Brockway topped Tim Pfeifer of Oakdale, Pa., 222-187, in the semifinal round to set up the championship match. Challenge tournaments are open to PBA members who have not won a PBA title and non-PBA members who have never won a PBA event.

Closing out PBA’s 2018 regional calendar will be the PBA50/PBA Houston Emerald Bowl Doubles presented by Bowling Dynamix over the Dec. 21-23 weekend, and the PBA Japan Region’s Scorpion and Women’s Scorpion Open tournaments at Tokyo Hagashiyamato Grand Bowl.
