Exciting series of events on tap for the Professional Bowlers Association on FOX Sports

(May 20, 2020) - The Professional Bowlers Association will be back live on FOX, Saturday, June 6, from 7-9 pm ET, with the first-ever PBA Strike Derby, beginning a series of exciting special events over the next two months featuring the greatest bowlers in the world.

Go Bowling! PBA Tour stars Tommy Jones, Kyle Troup, Sean Rash, EJ Tackett, Kris Prather, Shawn Maldonado, Anthony Simonsen and Bill O'Neill will be getting back on the lanes in compelling bowling formats involving 2020 individual event top finishers, satisfying fans craving for action and serving notice: Bowling is back!

All of the competition will be held at Bowlero Jupiter in Florida, without fans in attendance and an abundance of caution towards the safety of the players, officials and TV production crew.

"We are so excited to be one of the first properties bringing live sports back to broadcast television," PBA CEO Colie Edison said. "This dynamic series of events will showcase the immense talent of our elite bowlers to a wide audience and we look forward to welcoming new fans to the Professional Bowlers Association."

First up is the inaugural "PBA Strike Derby," live on FOX, from 7-9 pm ET, Saturday, June 6, in what will surely be the greatest display of strikes ever on TV. The eight players will compete in a timed competition with each player getting 2 minutes to record as many strikes as they can. They will then be placed into an elimination bracket where the Strike Derby will continue until the first champion is named.

The following Saturday, June 13, also on FOX, from 6-8 pm ET, the "PBA Summer Clash" takes to the lanes in the popular one-ball elimination format that has twice garnered the highest TV ratings in more than a decade. As an added twist, the top two PWBA Tour players in points, Shannon O'Keefe and Danielle McEwan, will join the 8 PBA stars at the starting gate to begin round one, with the low score eliminated. That process continues round-by-round until one player will be left standing as champion.

Next up in July and featuring more players to be named, will be a four-night, live, "PBA King of the Lanes" series on FS1, with dates to be announced. The format will begin by deciding the "King" of the lanes, who will then defend the crown against a different challenger in a one-game match. The winner will be the King and returns the next night to face new challengers, with that process continuing each night.

Regularly scheduled PBA Tour events on FOX Sports that were postponed due to COVID-19, such as PBA World Series of Bowling animal pattern championships, the USBC Masters, PBA Playoffs and PBA League team competition, are being rescheduled for the fall and winter.

Viewers can live stream the PBA shows on the FOX Sports and FOX NOW apps or at FOXSports.com. Select highlights will be available on @FOXSports social handles across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

PBA League Draft Results

by kwarner2 May 18, 2020 11:50

(May 18, 2020) - The expansion Las Vegas High Rollers selected two-time US Open champion Francois Lavoie with the first pick of the PBA League Draft powered by BowlerX Sunday, which was conducted virtually, live on FloBowling.

The Draft, originally scheduled for March 15 in Las Vegas at the PBA WSOB, was postponed due to COVID-19.

A highlight of the Draft was the complete 5-player construction of two expansion teams, the High Rollers and Brew City Ballers.

In all, 26 players were drafted to the 10 League teams, as eight of the original clubs were able to protect three players from their 2019 rosters. Fifty-two players were eligible to be drafted based on their points standing in PBA Tour competition over the past two years.

Of note, nine of the 26 players selected during Tuesday's Draft are international PBA players, increasing the number to 13 of the 50 players on 2020 rosters.

All 10 PBA League team managers made their selections remotely to the FloBowling audience, with PBA League Commissioner Tom Clark presiding over the draft from his home in Wisconsin. Most players selected appeared via Zoom to comment on being chosen.

The defending champion Portland Lumberjacks manager Tim Mack filled his roster with Sweden's Martin Larsen and two-handed lefty Packy Hanrahan, joining Kyle Troup, Kris Prather and 2019 Mark Roth MVP Award winner Wes Malott.

The PBA League Elias Cup tournament, originally scheduled for July at Bayside Bowl in Portland, ME, was postponed due to COVID-19 and will be rescheduled back in Maine, for later this year.
