During the 1950s, the ABC Tournament often staged a three-game exhibition match featuring members of the Hall of Fame.  The opposition was usually provided by a team of veteran local stars.  At the 1952 ABC in Milwaukee, the Hall of Famers rolled against Heil Products.  Marino and Day, ex-Heils, bowled with their former teammates.  The Hall of Famers won, 2853-2666. (No soft conditions then!)
