Bobby's Bowling Team
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     "Strike!" yelled Bobby, as his ball knocked down all ten of the pins at the end of the lane. Bobby was a great bowler. When he was little, Bobby's grandpa brought him to the bowling alley whenever he had a game. Bobby watched his grandpa bowl every week.
 
2     When he turned five, his grandpa bought Bobby his own ball. It was much smaller than the grownups' ball, but it was still very heavy. Bobby's grandpa started teaching him how to bowl after his own game was over. Bobby had been bowling with his grandpa for the last seven years. Each year, Bobby got better. As Bobby grew, his ball got bigger and heavier, too.
 
3     This year, Bobby was in a bowling tournament. He was on a team with several other bowlers. They played a bowling game called ten-pin bowling. In ten-pin bowling, there are ten pins at the end of the alley. The bowler sends the ball down the lane and tries to knock down all ten pins with the bowling ball. If he does not knock them all down, he tries a second time. The number of pins knocked over after his second chance is the bowler's score for that frame. Each of the bowlers on a team get ten frames or chances to knock down all the pins. The scores are added up, and the winner is the bowling team with the highest score.
