900 Series No. 22 and 23 (updated) Print


(April 21, 2013)  Joe Scarborough of Charlotte, N.C., rolled three consecutive 300 games, throwing 36 consecutive strikes, to start the first round of qualifying in the PBA50 Sun Bowl at The Villages at Spanish Springs Lanes Sunday (April 21st), recording the first 900 series in Professional Bowlers Association history. This 900 series also counts for the 23 recorded 900 in history.

Carolina man has rolled the first 900 series in Professional Bowlers Association history — three straight perfect games.


The PBA said Monday that Norm Duke bowled three consecutive 300s in a standard PBA Tour event in 1996, but the performance didn't count as a 900 series because he ended one round with two perfect games and started the next round with the third.

Scarborough is a 50-year-old self-employed electrical contractor who was competing in his second event in the renamed PBA Senior Tour. He qualified 38th in the re-named PBA Senior Tour’s season-opener in New Port Richey, Fla. Joe threw another strike to start his fourth game, but his streak ended at 37 when he left a split on his 38th shot. Three straight sub-200 games then toppled him out of the lead and into a tie for 12th place.

Things did not get better on Monday, as Scarborough struggled to a 1652 eight-game total, and missed the cut to the top 32 players, finishing in a tie for 49th place.

For his 13 games after the 900, Scarborough averaged just 205. In comparison, the two-day leader, Kevin Croucher of Grants Pass, Ore., was rolling at a 251 clip on the forgiving Cheetah pattern.

When all was said and done, a familiar face was in the winner’s circle: that of Walter Ray Williams Jr.

“I’m pretty surprised,” Scarborough said. “I had the shot, I took my time and it worked out. To be honest, no, I wasn’t nervous. I was pretending I was at home practicing, and I blocked out the crowd and focused on executing every shot.

“After the first three games, I moved to the other end of the house where the lanes were drier and I just couldn't get the ball down the lane the same way. It wasn't the pressure.

“It’s unbelievable, especially to be the first in the PBA to do it,” he added. Scarborough said his previous high three-game series was an 838 and he had 14 previous 300 games.

“It’s interesting that I used a different ball to start practice, but I switched (to a Storm IQ Tour Pearl) and I threw six strikes in a row to end practice. So I decided to start with that ball. I knew I had something good, but not this good.

“I’m proud of what I’ve done so far,” he added, “but I’ve still got work to do.”

Scarborough’s perfect start set PBA50 Tour records for consecutive 300 games (the previous record was two by Norb Wetzel of Fond du Lac, Wis., in Albany, N.Y., in 1998 and by Rohn Morton of Portland, Ore., in Tucson, Ariz., in 2005), and highest three-game series. He also tied the record for most 300s by an individual in a PBA50 Tour tournament, shared by Ron Mohr of Eagle River, Alaska (Columbus, Ohio, 2010) and Bob Kelly of Dayton, Ohio (Mooresville, N.C., 2010).

(April 16, 2013) James Williams of Pawcatuck, Conn., has been striking across the New England area for decades and solidified his place in bowling history Tuesday as he rolled 36 consecutive strikes for a 900 series at Old Mountain Lanes in nearby Wakefield, R.I.

The 47-year-old right-hander struck on every shot he threw during the South County Classic league to become the 22nd bowler in history to record a perfect series.

In Williams' final frame, the 4 pin fell late on his first shot, and the 10 pin was the last to go on his second. His final delivery of the evening was an unforgettable light-mixer that earned him a spot in one of the most exclusive clubs in the sport. Bob D'Antuono of Lincoln, R.I., previously owned the Ocean State's highest set with 889, rolled in 1997.

"I was just trying to make good shots," Williams said. "I was a little nervous with everybody watching, but I tried to take it one shot at a time and just see what would happen. I never expected to have a night like this."

ARLINGTON, Texas - Anyone looking for Jimmy Schmitzer of Riverside, Calif., usually can find him at a local bowling center competing in one of his seven leagues or tossing up to an additional 100 practice games each week.

The 18-year-old's hard work and dedication paid off when he rolled 36 consecutive strikes for a 900 series in the Green River Vegas mixed league at Brunswick Classic Lanes in Norco, Calif., on Friday night. The league consists of 17 five-player teams, and more than 100 people crowded around to see the final frame.

The accomplishment still is pending approval from the United States Bowling Congress, but would make the teen the 20th bowler in history to achieve the feat. John Martorella Sr. of Greece, N.Y., rolled a perfect series on April 12, and the two would own the 20th and 21st USBC-approved 900 series.

"I was pretty nervous through the first six the last game, but after that, I knew I had the momentum and really thought I could do it," Schmitzer said. "It was the best moment of my life. It was great having everyone there, and I knew my mom and dad would be happy for me."

Schmitzer is naturally left-handed, but uses a two-handed delivery and attacks the pins from the right side of the lane. He developed the unique style when he was 8 years old and never felt comfortable with a more traditional release.

With the full support of his parents, who were league bowlers many years ago, he took on the challenge of adult leagues and tournaments beginning with the 2010-11 season and has seen vast improvement. His average climbed from the low 200s a couple of years ago to 239 at the end of his first adult season.

Since moving up, Schmitzer has rolled four additional perfect games and four 800 series, so he was in somewhat familiar territory Friday, at least for the first game.

"He's bowled 300s and 800s before, and we were very happy for him when he shot the first one last night," said Schmitzer's mother, Marti. "When he got the second one, we couldn't believe it. When he started the third game, I just couldn't handle it. I started shaking and had to go outside. When he got through the last frame, I broke down. We're so happy for him."

Schmitzer's ultimate goal is to find success as a professional bowler, but in the short-term, he and his family are headed to Las Vegas, where he plans to join the bowling team at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV).

"We're at the bowling alley seven days a week, whether it's for league or just practice," said Schmitzer's father, Jim. "We're there to support him, not only financially, but to guide him. We coached him when he was younger, and we're there when he gets outside coaching, too. There's nowhere else he'd rather be, and we'll be behind him no matter what."

John Martorella Sr. (pictured left with his son) has been around bowling for 24 years, but even he was in shock at what he accomplished on Thursday night.

Martorella recorded 36 straight strikes for three perfect games and Rochester’s first 900 series at Domm’s Bowling Center in Greece N.Y. The 28-year-old Greece resident became just the 20th person ever to reach the mark in a sanctioned league according to the U.S. Bowling Congress, which began keeping the record in 1997.

The 900 series breaks the previous Rochester bowling record of 879, shared by Jeff Alchowiak in 2007 and Bill Stoddard in 2010. Both came at Empire Lanes.

“It took a lot of luck and a lot of skill throwing ball after ball and staying focused,” said Martorella Sr., who owns a 238 average. “It’s a pretty overwhelming accomplishment.”

He made history on the final night of the season in the Knox Amusement Scratch League. He said he has bowled 11 or 12 300 games in his lifetime, but never back-to-back, let alone three in a row.

“All I can think right now is I’m one of 20 people who have done this.”

Making it even more memorable was that it came at the place where he grew up with bowling. He co-manages Domm’s Bowl, a 16 lane establishment, with his father, Joe, and brother, Frank. Joe Martorella, a Rochester Bowling Hall of Fame member, has been an owner of the facility on West Ridge Road since 1971.

“This is phenomenal,” said Joe Martorella, who has three 300 games of his own. “It’s almost unreal that anyone could shoot three 300 games in a row. That it’s my son is even more unbelievable.”

Lanes 5 and 6 have been good to Martorella, evidenced by the 800 series he previously recorded there.
“It’s the place I grew up and every lane has a particular way they play and I pretty much know how each one goes,” he said.

"Before I threw the last strike, I took a deep breath and told myself if I got the last one, I'd tie the world record, and to be able to do it is absolutely amazing," Martorella said. "This just feels incredible. My phone has been ringing all day with calls from friends, the local news, people I haven't talked to in years and even local bowling legends I grew up watching. We have such a great bowling family here, and it's special to be able to share it with them."

Because of his responsibilities at the bowling center, Martorella often is pulled in different directions, even when he's bowling league. Thursday was no exception, as he spent part of the first game addressing a lane breakdown and organizing brackets.

Toward the end of the set, his 5-year-old son, John Jr., stopped him during his pre-shot routine and asked if he could bowl, too.

"I was able to shoot 300 the first game, and then things started to settle down, so I was able to stay on my pair," Martorella said. "When my son came up to me during my pre-shot swing in the ninth frame, I couldn't help but laugh. It gave me a chance to step back and start my routine all over, and it really helped. I'm glad that he and my father were able to be there with me. My brother bowls in the league, too."

This year, Martorella cut his league participation back to just one league and is having one of his best seasons, which ended Thursday night with a 238 average. He also rolled a pair of 300s and two 800 series earlier in the year. He now owns 15 perfect games and five 800s to go along with his latest achievement.

"I'm here an awful lot, so I decided I didn't want to commit to two leagues this year, which left my Friday nights open to go out and do some other things," said Martorella, who spends about 50 hours each week at the bowling center. "I try to practice every other day, and a lot of my focus is on tournaments on the weekends."

In three weeks, Martorella will head south to Baton Rouge, La., for the 2012 USBC Open Championships, the world's largest participatory sporting event. He will be making his fourth consecutive tournament appearance and looks to improve on the career-best 2,001 all-events total he posted at the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, Nev., last year. His father won a Regular Team title at the 1971 event in Detroit.

"I've been throwing the ball really well lately, and I hope some of this carries over," said Martorella, who owns a 204.7 average at the Open Championships. "You just try to use something like this to your advantage, and it definitely keeps your confidence up."

ARLINGTON, Texas – Bob Kammer Jr. of Crown Point, Ind., rolled a perfect 900 series Saturday night. The series is still pending formal approval by the United States Bowling Congress.

Kammer, who would be the 18th bowler in history to roll a USBC-approved 900 series, tossed 36 consecutive strikes in the Saturday Invitational League at Stardust Bowl II in Merrillville, Ind. He would be the first bowler from the state of Indiana to record a certified 900 series.

“It was unbelievable, and I was nervous,” said Kammer, a 41-year-old right-hander. “It’s not something that happens every day.”

Most bowlers cringe at the thought of bowling on an end pair. It was just another pair of lanes for Bob Kammer Jr.

“I love end pairs even more now,” said Kammer with a laugh. “When I’m on an end, I don’t have to worry about anybody walking up on one side of me. And for some reason, they always seem to do well by me.”

Competing on lanes one and two, Kammer said the rest of the league stopped play to watch him after the seventh frame of his third game.

Click here for a video of the last three shots.

“I was just thinking, please carry,” Kammer said in describing his final strike. “I was taking deep breaths and trying to get the ball clean off my hand.”

Kammer works for Ford Motor Company and may be a local celebrity when he returns to work.

He used a Raw Hammer Jacked for all three games of his 900 series. He keeps two in his bowling bag, and says it’s been his go-to ball since he drilled them.

“Hammer balls always give me a great reaction,” he said. “The Jacked I used for the 900 gave me a perfect read of the lanes. I didn’t have to move the entire night.”

“My phone has been blowing up,” Kammer said. “I am having my 15 minutes of fame and it’s fun.”

Kammer’s 900 series would be the 19th USBC-approved in history. The first USBC-approved 900 occurred Feb. 2, 1997 when Jeremy Sonnenfeld rolled three consecutive perfect games in Lincoln, Neb. There has never been a 900 on Sport Bowling lane conditions.

OAKWOOD, Ohio -- A 23-year-old Medina man bowled a history-making 900 series Sunday at Roseland Lanes in Oakwood. He became the 17th person to bowl the perfect series.

Matt Latarski said, "I couldn't miss." He rolled three consecutive perfect games, breaking his previous high score of 814 two years ago. Latarski started bowling when he was 5. He rolled six 300 games prior to today.

He, his grandfather, father, uncle and brother bowl in a league every Sunday at Roseland. Latarski's team, Two Studs & an Old Guy, includes his brother and an older friend. They attracted a crowd Sunday morning as they bowled the last frames of the third game.

By the 10th frame, everyone else in building had stopped bowling, and Latarski was nervous. "You could have heard a pin drop," he said.

Latarski will receive a ring for the 300 games and a solid-gold diamond ring for the 900 series. “It didn’t matter where I threw the ball,” Latarski said at the Medina Lanes where he came to cel­ebrate his team’s vic­tory Sunday after­noon. “Everything was just right there. I couldn’t miss.”

Latarski’s father, uncle, grandfather and several friends were there Sunday to witness the effort. By the ninth frame of the last game, Latarski said everyone in the bowling alley had stopped playing to watch him. He said his father, Kevin Latarski, was “even more nervous than I was” down the stretch.

“I was a wreck,” Kevin Latarski said. “I’ve seen 300s before, but not like that.” Matt Latarski said he has been bowling with his family since he was 5 years old. “I love the competition,” he said.

The ball he used to achieve perfec­tion Sunday was a 15-year-old 16-pounder that his father used before him. Each bowling member of the fam­ily has bowled at least one 300, Latarski said. He said he had bowled a 300 six times before, the first at Medina Lanes when he was 16, but the idea of doing it three times in a row seemed unreal.

“It still hasn’t even sunk in yet,” he said. Perhaps the solid-gold and diamond ring he will receive for the accomplish­ment will serve as a reminder. Latarski said he hopes to be able to become a professional bowler, but in the meantime, he’s not worried about peaking too early in his career. 

Andrew_TeallAndrew Teall 900 (No. 15) Nov. 2, 2009

Andrew Teall didn't plan on bowling this season. After finishing off the 2008-09 season with a 228 average in 90 games, he wanted to take a break.

But after the 24-year-old Medford resident's father, Tom, injured his left knee late last season and underwent surgery in August to clean up a torn meniscus in the joint, Andrew was added to the roster. He has been filling in for his father on a team called Wipeout in the Monday Night Invitational League at Medford Lanes since play started Sept. 14.

That twist of fate led to the younger Teall staring down Lane 9 Monday, one strike away from knocking down his 36th consecutive strike with a Roto Grip Cell.

When the right-hander's ball took down all 10 pins, he made history.

Teall recorded just the 15th sanctioned 900 series in the history of bowling (six other 900 series are unsanctioned) since 1895 according to the United States Bowling Congress, the national governing body for the sport based in Arlington, Tex.

It was the first-ever by anyone in the South Jersey Bowling Association.

To score a 900 series, a bowler records three consecutive perfect games in a single match with 12 consecutive strikes in each game.

"It's somewhat comparable to a perfect game in baseball where 27 batters come up and all go down," said Mark Miller, corporate communications manager for the USBC, which oversees more than 3,300 local associations and 5,000 bowling centers.

By comparison, there have only been 18 perfect games thrown in major league baseball history in 134 years, opposed to the 21 total 900 series in 114 years.


"There was quite a silent crowd during the 10th frame," said Teall, a 2003 graduate of Shawnee High School who as senior was a second-team All-South Jersey bowler. "After I did it, the first thing I heard was my Dad's loud voice and then there were a lot of hands in my face for high fives and a lot of man hugs."

"There was a big crowd that kept growing and by the time the 10th frame hit, the place was packed," said Dave DeSantis, vice president of the South Jersey Bowling Association

"It was actually very surreal and to be honest, I wasn't nervous," said Teall, who has been bowling competitively since he was a high school freshman. I had bowled 300 (five times) before but never twice in a row. When I got halfway through the second game, I actually thought I could do two in a row and when I did, it was an unbelievable feeling. Then the third game, it just came and went.

"I'm pretty superstitious when I'm bowling. I have the same routine and I get in a groove. I only touch the same five or six people all night for congratulations and I try not to look around to see who's watching. You just have to drown everything out."

After last season, he wanted to take some time off from bowling because he was getting burnt out.

"It was mentally draining," said Teall. "Ask anybody down at the lanes, I was a head case. I always want to do better and improve."

The Tealls are a bowling family. Andrew and his sister Lori, a 2005 Shawnee graduate, both were named South Jersey Bowler of the Week during their high school careers. The siblings each registered their first career 300 games exactly a year apart -- Andrew on Jan. 12, 2004, and Lori on Jan. 12, 2005.

"Bowling is a sport that gives you an opportunity to do something with your children and it's great," said Tom Teall. "It's been a catalyst to all hang out together and my wife (Amy) has gotten back into it too. It's a great family thing."

Oddly enough, the 14th 900 series occurred just three days prior to Teall's historic performance.

On Oct. 30. (see below) Chris Aker, a 47-year-old left-hander pulled off the rare feat in Winnermucca, Nev.

"We've been averaging about one a year since the first approved 900 series was bowled on Feb. 2, 1997, by Jeremy Sonnenfeld in Lincoln, Neb." said Miller who added that the sport's governing body only recognizes such a feat if the league, lanes, and individual is a member of the organization.

Of the 15 900 series on record with the USBC, two were turned in by 18-year-old Robert Mushtere from Ft. Drum, NY on Dec. 5, 2005, and Feb. 19, 2006. Because of Mushtere's accomplishments though, the USBC has adjusted its rules for recognizing perfection.

"He had done those in unopposed competition, meaning that he (and/or his team) bowled at a different time than the people he was bowling against," said Miller. "In answer to that, we don't give awards to unopposed competition."

Tom Teall's highest career game was a 279, but don't expect Dad to play Wally Pipp to his son Andrew's Lou Gehrig.

"I'm hoping to get back sooner than later and I think that once I'm able to bowl that he'll take some time off," said Tom Teall, who said he expected to miss the first half of the 2009-10 season, which runs from September until May. "He really is having fun and that's all he wanted to do. He wanted to have fun and not make it a chore. He was always trying to be perfect, but lately he's just having fun and I think that was a big contributing factor (to rolling the 900)."

Andrew Teall doesn't have to try any longer. For one night he was perfect. 


Chris Aker's 900 (No. 14) Oct. 30, 2009

When that fickle Lady Luck is on your side, it seems she is stuck like glue; but when she's not, she's not.

And Oct. 30, Ms. Luck was certainly on Chris Aker's side when he bowled a 900 series using the Hammer Big Rig Diesel.

“I've always preferred Hammer balls, way back to the Blue Hammer urethane days, because they have always given me a consistent reaction,” he said.

On this particular night, Aker was bowling with his wife Ellen, Humboldt County Sheriff Ed Kilgore and Kilgore's wife Season, at Friday Mixers at Spare Time Bowl in the Humboldt County seat of Winnemucca, Nev., population 7,174, where he also owns Aker's Pro Shop.

“I opened a bowling pro shop as a hobby/side job back in the summer of 2006. The (Big Rig Diesel) I used during the 900 series was the very first ball I drilled for my self when I opened the shop,” he said.

A 10-year veteran of the Winnemucca Police Department, Aker said he has thrown 10 sanctioned 300 games (including the triple from October) and about eight additional non-sanctioned perfect games.

“After I shot the first 300 that night, I thought that it was cool, but I really wanted to throw another, since I had never had two 300 games in the same 3-game series,” he said. “Once I got the second game completed, and started the third, I just wanted to throw a few strikes to assure that I wouldn't choke and not even shoot 800 for the evening.”

It wasn't until he was about halfway into the final game that the thought of a 900 series occurred to him, he said.

“I told [Kilgore] that I was really starting to think about 900 and I needed to get away from the lanes between shots. I went into the bar and sat by myself between each shot after that.That really helped me focus on each individual shot,” he said.

But, just like in Las Vegas, which is six hours south of Winnemucca, it wasn't an accomplishment that was easy to come by.

“I had a couple of breaks that allowed me to shoot the 900,”he said. “I threw the 12th ball of the second game and the first ball of game three approximately 3/10's of a mph slow, and tripped a 6-pin on each of those. When I threw the seventh shot of game three, I thought I was going to leave a flat seven pin, but got lucky and it tripped late.”

Still, there were times when he thought the 900 series was a lost cause.

“In the 11th frame of game three, I was really concentrating on keeping my feet slow and I screwed up and was too slow. I tugged that shot so badly, that I immediately thought, 'that's on the beak,' figuring it was going right on the headpin and I had blown it” Aker said.“Luckily, it crossed over and struck despite my poor execution. That really took the pressure off of the final shot. I told myself to speed the last shot up a bit,and I did. It came in a little light, but I knew it was going to carry. The 10 pin fell last, and that was that.”

A perfect series doesn't change what Aker wants out of life and bowling, though.

“My goals now are the same as they were prior to shooting 900,” he said.“I've always felt that I had the ability to do something special in bowling. I still hope to do so, but I have no idea what that might be. I plan to bowl the mega-bucks tourneys in Las Vegas, and eventually try a few stops on the Senior PBA tour, so maybe I'll get lucky and win one of those.”

Aker has been bowling for about 30 years, he said. He was a member of the Washington State Cougars bowling team that placed second at the Collegiate Nationals during his first year. Aker had the highest average of that tournament. He was also named to the All-Tournament team and was an Honorable Mention All American.

It seemed that he was headed to the Professional Bowlers Association tour until he was involved in an accident with a drunk driver in December of 1989.

“The accident injured my left shoulder, which required surgery to repair. I'm a lefty, so obviously this was a huge setback. The rehab didn't go very well, and I missed pretty much my entire junior year,” he said. “When I was able to bowl again during my senior year, my shoulder was still pretty screwed up and I just wasn't able to perform as well as I had prior to the accident.”

Eventually he healed, adapted his style and now focuses his attention on his shop and helping his customers become better bowlers.

“I just hope to continue to help my friends here become better, happier bowlers. Over the years I've had many people help me learn the game of bowling, and now that I (kind of) know what I'm doing, I really enjoy helping other people get better as well,” he said.“It really makes me happy when someone I've helped tells me that they are bowling better as a result of something I've done for them. Whether that was giving a lesson, or drilling them a ball, usually a Hammer, it all makes me glad I have the opportunity to help out.”

And, he said, he would never have achieved any of it without Hammer bowling.

“Shooting 900 was a great achievement for me, but I understand that there was a lot of luck involved. I'm very happy I drilled that Hammer ball three years ago,” he said. “Without Hammer equipment, I would have never shot a 900 series. No way.”

Rich Jerome Jr. 900 (No. 13) Dec. 22, 2008

If you're a 10-pin bowler, rolling a perfect game may be something you dream about.

A Baltimore County man made history by rolling not one, but three perfect games in a row.

At the Brunswick Perry Hall lanes, bowlers are buzzing. Rich Jerome Jr. made bowling history during his Monday night league by rolling three consecutive perfect games.

"It's still really unbelievable. The phone started ringing right after it happened and it hasn't stopped It's a big accomplishment. It will probably never happen again," he said.

His family is beaming with pride. "I'm very proud of him. I knew he could do it," said Felicia Jerome, Rich's wife.

"It doesn't get better. It's the Super Bowl of bowling. It's the greatest thing a bowler can do," said Rich Jerome Sr.

Late in the third game, all eyes were on Rich as the lanes fell silent.

"I started realizing I might have a shot at it in the seventh frame of the last game," said Jerome, now in his 11th year on the lanes. "It seemed from then on that people started standing around my lanes but I tried to watch the pins. I also tried to watching the football game on TV to take my mind off it.

"Everyone stopped. Everyone in the bowling center was back here," said Rich Jerome Jr. "Once the last ball got off my hand, I knew it was good. It struck and the place erupted. It's an indescribable feeling. It was awesome."

"After I finished, I looked around and it seemed like everyone there was on the settee area with me. It was very exciting."

Rich Jerome Jr. has been bowling for 11 years. He bowls five nights a week.

Jerome had 10 previous 300 games and five earlier 800 series. Two of his perfect games came as part of his previous career-high 857 series Nov. 3 in the Drug Trade League, also at Perry Hall. The Drug Trade is USBC's oldest certified league dating back to the 1896-97 season.

He's the first person in Maryland history to bowl three consecutive perfect games in league competition. Only 13 other bowlers have done it around the country.

What 900 series by Robert Mushtare?

These were not witnessed by anyone and they were allegedly done by Mushrare while being the only person on the lanes in his area. No one takes these two 900's seriously since they were unwitnessed and claimed to be bowl aheads. :o) What's even more absurd is that he say's he's done it 5 times!! Funny how there has never been any witnesses for these either. LOL

What are the odds?... Do the Math! ... Go figure!... Get a brain!

How can ABC/USBC NOT approve a real 900 (Glenn Allison's witnessed by many) yet see fit to approve **TWO** unwitnessed 900 series for Mushtare??? 

Was ABC/USBC threatened by a law suit? I think so since they clearly demonstrated immature, irrational behavior in their review. They chose to tuck their tail between their legs and run away from the situation as fast as possible. They therefore made a disgrace of themself as administrators and the association they represent.

This will go down in bowling history as the most asinine event of all time.
