There are a bunch of reasons to bowl. One of the most compelling is the simple fact that the enjoyment from bowling cuts across all levels of ability.Want proof? Look no further than the duckpin center of Riviera Bowl in Pasadena.Teresa Milligan carries an average of 106 in the Saturday Mixed ** league; Dave Schline is a 117 average bowler; and Donna Ratcliff is holding a 137 average."I started bowling about seven years ago," said Milligan, a Pasadena resident. "At that time, I averaged just 75!"

Outfield has traditionally offered the deepest reservoir of premium fantasy hitters. But no outfielder went in the top five of my first 2008 draft Monday night. Only two, Matt Holliday and Carl Crawford, went in the top 10. Only 11 went in the top 50. There are still more quality hitters in the outfield than at any other position, but the pool is weaker at the tippy-top than in most years. That could change in a hurry if Ryan Braun takes to his position switch and youngsters such as Justin Upton and Jay Bruce are as good as many expect.

If you are going to have to travel to Connecticut to bowl in a duckpin tournament, it would be nice to have someone hand you $300, wouldn't it?You bet.In John Estanich's case, he had to do a little work to get the $300; he had to team up with Steve Conners and win the 10th Annual Wayne Logue Memorial Doubles tournament at Mount Airy Lanes last weekend. No problem.Estanich threw games of 156, 147 and 185 for a 488 series; Conners had games of 139, 128 and 141 for a 408 set. Add 156 handicap pins, and the total of 1,052 did the trick: first place and a $600 first prize to share.

Karen and Basil Wisner operate Hampstead Bowling Center, a well-maintained family center where everyone is friendly and where a stranger doesn't remain a stranger very long.Their son, J. B., is a pretty fair tenpin bowler, but the Wisners never have had time to bowl. That has changed. This season the women in the Saturday morning league persuaded Karen to bowl."I haven't bowled since 1985," Karen said, "It was just like starting over."When Karen quit bowling seven years ago, she carried a 106 average.

It's just about impossible to walk into a bowling center and not hear hot-shot tenpin bowlers moaning because there aren't enough big-money leagues for them.They would like to bowl for big money but they like to put up little money.Fact: when there's a chance to bowl for big money the scratch bowlers suddenly become very scarce. Hold a qualifier for a pro event, men or women, and some embarrassingly low figures become apparent.Just this summer an event was conducted for scratch bowlers who could compete, not just for a load of money, but for the prestige of being named Baltimore's Best.
