Coverage Continues on ESPN of the GEICO PBA Team Shootout

7-13-2008

On Sunday, July 13, one of the Denny’s PBA Tour's most unique events in its 50-year history will continue with coverage of its 5-week series on ESPN. The GEICO PBA Team Shootout hosted by Six Flags Great America, featured 18 of the greatest bowlers in the world drafted into a rare team event held outdoors June 6-8 on specially-constructed lanes surrounded by the roar of park's roller coasters.

The 18 bowlers (16 champions from the 2007-08 Denny’s PBA Tour along with one additional player designated by the PBA, PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber, and another designated by major sponsor USBC, World Bowler of the Year Jason Belmonte from Australia) were divided into three teams with players being selected by three “captains” – PBA Hall of Famers Mark Roth, Carmen Salvino and Brian Voss.

After nine complete matches, the overall standings find Voss' Bosses at 2-4, Carmen's Cartel even at 3-3 and Roth's Raiders in the lead at 4-2.

At the end of the 12 game round robin match play series, the top two teams advanced to the championship round, which consisted of one singles match, one doubles match and one Baker-style match, with the captains choosing the participants for each match.

The original telecasts aired on ESPN will also air on ESPN 2 throughout the summer. See below for scheduled airings.
