Jack Haggerty

Jack Haggerty, pioneer Toledo Bowling Proprietor and well known national figure, began his bowling career in 1889 when he started to work in a two lane center in Shelby, Ohio.

He came to Toledo in 1912 and by 1949 had worked his way up to a 42 lane establishment known as Haggerty’s Bowling Center, which he operated for 23 years.

His life was bowling. He was one of the organizers of the BPAA which was formed in 1932 and served as it’s first Treasurer. In 1939, he was elected to the office of president.

At the time of his death, he was one of only four honorary members of ABC.

One of his biggest moments came October 19, 1934 when he rolled his only 300 game.
