Bowling a perfect game is a cause for celebration, but especially so for Dale Davis, a blind 78-year-old WWII vet.
“I can’t see the lane or the pins and have a heck of a time finding my ball sometimes,” Davis said “I can kinda see the dots on the floor to know where I start. After that, I rely on my hearing and other people to tell me what’s going on.”
And when he doesn't get a strike, he relies on others to tell him where the remaining pins are standing.
“When I got to the tenth frame, I said ‘Lord, let me throw three more good balls.’ When I did, people on other teams were yelling and cheering. A few guys were hugging me and almost broke my skinny bones.”
Dale is a great example for the rest of us, proving that you're never too old to set goals for yourself.“I always knew I wanted to have a 300, but I never thought it would be possible, especially as I got older and couldn’t see. Bowling rejuvenated me. I’ve got a love for this game I can’t even describe. Hopefully I’ll do this again when I’m 90.”
