A Dick Weber Bibliography

Dick Weber (1929-2005) may have been the greatest bowler in history.  He is certainly among the top three or four.  Weber won 26 PBA titles, and 4 All-Star tournaments in 5 years.  Bowlers Journal named him a first team All-American ten times.  He was also a three-time Bowler-of-the-Year.  A favorite with the fans, he was often called “Bowling’s Greatest Ambassador.”
