Matt Trecannelli has a 16-pound AMF Bobcat bowling ball that's too heavy for him to use. But don't try persuading him to give it up: The 9-year-old third-grader from Hickory Elementary School will hold ontothe ball until he can use it."I'm keeping the ball in my closet until I can put it on display," Matt said. "Pete Weber gave me that ball, and maybe someday I can use it when I'm a professional bowler."How did a little guy living in Bel Air get his hands on a superstar's bowling ball? Pretty simple: Weber gave him the ball.

Hall of Famer Pete Weber re-wrote the Professional Bowlers Association history book today when he defeated top qualifier Mike Scroggins 268-224 to win the Lumber Liquidators Marathon Open at AMF Country Club Lanes. With his 35th career victory, breaking his tie for third place on the all-time PBA Tour titles list with Mark Roth, Weber, of St. Ann, Mo., denied Scroggins' bid to become 2009-10 PBA Player of the Year, and handed that crown to his long-time rival, Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Ocala, Fla. Williams becomes the first to win the PBA Player of the Year title seven times, breaking a tie with the late Earl Anthony.

Defending champion Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, slipped to third place with one game to go but rallied in the final game Friday night to regain his lead in the Lumber Liquidators Marathon Open at AMF Country Club Lanes. With seven games remaining this morning on the Dick Weber lane condition, however, the race for five spots on Sunday's ESPN telecast remained wide open. Malott, who entered Friday's play with a 91-pin lead over Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, escaped the Scorpion and Earl Anthony lane conditioning rounds with a 45-pin lead over Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., who started the day in 13th place.

The Fair Lanes PBA Open in Baltimore is fast acquiring a reputation for dramatic firsts. Last year Danny Wiseman won his first tournament in his hometown. And last week Pete Weber led all qualifiers by rolling 42 consecutive games over 200 -- a PBA record.But it was the last ball of the last frame of the tournament that stunned a full house at Fair Lanes Kings Point and a national TV audience Saturday.After Weber finished the championship game with five strikes and a 213 score, Del Ballard Jr. needed 27 pins in the 10th frame to win. Ballard got the toughest part -- the first two strikes -- and all he had to do was knock down seven more for the $30,000 first prize.

Danny Wiseman came home to reach The Show. The hometown favorite withstood a serious rally by veteran Norm Duke last night and advanced to tomorrow's televised finals of the 2006 Beltway Classic at AMF Country Club Lanes in Middle River. It marked the first time since March 2005 in Indianapolis that Wiseman has marched into the final four, and he accomplished it by applying some risk to his match against Duke, who overrode a 3-1 deficit in games and was on the verge of completing a determined comeback.
