Ken Alexander bowled his first 300 over 30 years ago. He did it 100 times on Wednesday night.
Toledo, Ohio — Ken Alexander is a lifelong bowler. He started playing at the age of only five and never stopped.
His parents owned a bowling alley for some time and helped build a passion for the game.
After working for Jeep for over 30 years, Alexander retired in 2009. Since then, he has worked with his lifelong friends at the Jugs Bowling Center.
“I do counters, bars, machines. Whatever they need,” he said.
Alexander bowled his first perfect game about 30 years ago.
“The first time I did it, I was really nervous because I had never shot it,” he said.
But that’s not Alexander’s last 300 games. In the next 30 years, he will play an impressive 99 more perfect matches.
Over the last decade, 300 games have piled up, and on Wednesday night Alexander recorded his 100th perfect game.
“I was very nervous again. Others weren’t really nervous. That is, I’m a little nervous, but not like yesterday. That’s what I wanted to do, and I finally did it.” He said.
Alexander said he loves bowling games, but record aside, the best part is the people around him.
“Now I’ve got 100, so it’s okay to shoot more, but I’m not going to get 200. Bowling is a night out with friends,” he said.
