As Danny Wiseman winds down his professional bowling career — he describes himself as “semi-retired” — he says he’s looking for ways to give back.
“I wanted to do something to give back to the community, and give back to the kids,” he told Brian Hradsky of Press Box Online. And that’s how the Danny Wiseman Junior Scholarship Tournament came to be.
The event is set for Oct. 14 at AMF Country Club Lanes (http://amf.com/countryclublanes) in Wiseman’s hometown of Baltimore, and Wiseman is hoping to fill the 140 available spots with youth bowlers from up and down the East Coast. Similar to a PBA tournament, the “cashing” ratio is impressive: One bowler for each five entries will receive a scholarship to help fund their college education.
