There is a person bowling on the PBA Tour now who has represented the Buffalo area for more than 20 years with great dignity, class and professionalism. In no way, shape or form has he, or the PBA, for that matter, received adequate media attention here throughout his highly successful career.
Here is someone who has consistently shown for over two decades that he is one of the best bowlers in the WORLD! Start giving Tom Baker his due in this area with more in-depth coverage of the game he has proven himself in year in and year out, again and again.
While bowling has passed many great professionals by, Tommy has persevered, adapted, and simply gutted it out to remain at the top of the bowling world at an age when many others have long since "packed it in."
Kudos on a great career, Bakes, and may continued success follow you for a long time to come.
