2023 Hall of Fame Inductee
Mike McGrath from Petaluma was nominated for this induction by his good friend, Barry Asher. Mike grew up at Golden Gate Lanes in El Cerrito (East Bay) and started his professional bowling career at age 19 winning his first event in 1965.
Mike won back-to-back PBA National Championships in 1969 and 1970 when he was the tour’s leading money winner. McGrath finished his career with 10 tour titles, $238,305 in career earnings and the legacy of being one of the top left-handers in the PBA. McGrath is a member of the PBA Hall of Fame (1988), the USBC Hall of Fame (1993) and this year, a member of the California USBC Hall of Fame posthumously. We sadly lost Mike in 2017 at the age of 71. He will be honored posthumously by his good friend Barry Asher, who is also being inducted this year.
