1990 – Pioneer
Alex Silvestro’s credentials are such that he could have been elected to the Ohio Bowling Hall of Fame in any of three categories. He still owns and operates a four lane center (Lane beds 1928 vintage) in Cleveland (Bowl-Mores) and has bowling in his soul.
The decade of the 50’s saw Silvestro reach his prime in bowling ability as he attained a high average of 224 in 1954 and shot several 800 series, the highest being 805 in 1954. He has three 300 games to his credit during the same period. From 1950-53 he claimed tow men’s state all events titles and two state Lutheran tournament all events titles. He was inducted to the Cleveland Men’s Hall of Fame in 1984.
His bowling ability, teaching of the game and achievements as an amateur truly qualifies this 76 year young man for the title of “Pioneer” in our great game.
