Bowling Wiseman elected to PBA Hall of Fame Danny Wiseman of Baltimore, a 12-time PBA Tour winner, was elected to the PBA Hall of Fame along with Doug Kent , the Professional Bowlers Association announced Friday. They will be inducted during the Hall of Fame dinner March 30 in Indianapolis. Wiseman, 45, joined the tour in 1987 and has earned just over $1.55 million. Wiseman, who attended Dundalk, won his first title at the 1990 Fair Lanes Open in Baltimore. Perhaps his most famous win came in 2004, when he took the USBC Miller High Life Masters at Miller Park in Milwaukee - the first time a bowling championship had been conducted inside a major league baseball stadium.

After then-12-year-old Hunter Machin bowled a perfect 300 game earlier this year, he could have left the sport knowing he had accomplished a feat that is difficult even for professional bowlers. But it appears he is not done yet. Now 13, Hunter has bowled an 800 series, something bowling experts consider much more difficult than a 300. The Dundalk resident bowled games of 269, 289 and 278 for a score of 833 on Nov. 9 at Brunswick Perry Hall Lanes. But Hunter wasn't celebrating right away - he was focused on the fact that he narrowly missed another 300 three times in a row. "He was like, 'I can't believe I didn't get my 300 again,'" his mom, Vickie Machin, said.

After Hunter Machin bowled his first 300 in late January, he celebrated in a pretty nontraditional way: He went home and took a nap. But Machin's perfect game was anything but traditional - after all, he was only 12 years old. While most of his fellow seventh graders at Dundalk Middle School are focusing on homework and playing with friends, Machin is busy at the bowling alley, winning tournaments against kids more than six years his senior and...

If recent history holds form, Mike Scroggins could very well be on track for his fourth career Professional Bowlers Association Tour title in the 2006 Beltway Classic at AMF Country Club Lanes. Scroggins, from Amarillo, Texas, who led the round of 64 with a 14-game pinfall of 3,495, only has to look at the last two standard PBA Tour events featuring single-elimination match play to see that the No. 1 seed entering match play has gone on to win the title. "Being No. 1 out here definitely gives you a little edge because you know you beat everyone the day before," Scroggins said.

Sean Rash wants to set the record straight: The two-year PBA Tour veteran has no beef with Danny Wiseman or Baltimore fans. Rash, 25, is the cocky upstart who defeated the Baltimore resident, 256-236, in the semifinals in front of Wiseman's home crowd last year en route to winning the 2006 Beltway Classic. The Wichita, Kan., native then caused a minor stir when he yelled out to the crowd, "Who's your hometown fan now?" The comment was heard on television and quickly became a hot topic on the sport's message boards.

I like the one-on-one a little bit better."Wiseman, who also won the Kessler Classic in Riverside, Calif., and a total of $81,156 last year on the PBA circuit, let it be known that success hasn't gone to his head.

Danny Wiseman is practicing at Country Club Lanes on Pulaski Highway, sounding like the 10-pin version of Rodney Dangerfield while expounding on a favorite topic: why bowling gets no respect. "I hate it when they say bowling's not a sport," he says now. "Tell me why it isn't? Because we don't make millions?" I shrug and tell him I have no idea. "Take your best in-shape athlete," he continues, voice rising, "and have him bowl three or four games, and he'll be sore the next day. " I shrug again.

Warren Guernsey of Cobleskill, N.Y., has been bowling well enough lately to consider returning to the Professional Bowlers Association Tour full time. His performance yesterday in the Lipton Brisk PBA East Coast Tournament did nothing to change that notion. Guernsey, 28, finished plus-359 in eight games at Shake and Bake Bowl in West Baltimore to lead the tournament and qualify for today's finals. Eleven others in the 78-man field, including Danny Wiseman of Baltimore and Tim Criss of Bel Air, also advanced.

For more than 30 years, Albert Wiseman worked as an optical lens grinder for the same Baltimore employer.In the past 2 1/2 years, his son, Danny Wiseman, has worked on the Professional Bowlers Association Tour, traveling back and forth across the continent and in Puerto Rico.Their occupations gave them vastly different lifestyles: Albert with deep roots in Dundalk, Danny roving the highways from one tournament to another, towing a mobile home. But for years they were together, and they shared a common dream for Danny.
