Throwback Thursday 2/9/17: “Moline Bowler Scores 789 in Three Games”

“What is believed to be the second highest three-game bowling score ever recorded in league play under A. B. C. rules was hung up at Moline last night by Arvid (Abbie) Hartzman, who is scheduled to compete with the Moline Martins in the A. B. C. meet at Chicago soon. Hartzman’s totals for the three games 267, 268 and 254 – 789. In each game he made eight consecutive strikes. Had he toppled two pins left standing in the last frame of his last game, he would have exceeded 800 for a world’s record.”
