Noted PBA Professional and Hall of Fame Member Danny Wiseman, of Baltimore, won the PBA East Region Forest Hill Lanes Open on Sunday, with a combined point total of 5,822 pins. He was 12-4 in the 16 individual matches over the three-day tournament, and bested second-place finisher Bill O’Neill, of Southampton, Pa., by 21 pins.

Wiseman won a $5,000 cash prize and an engraved crystal bowling pin. O’Neill won $2,600, and third-place finisher Ryan Ciminelli, from Cheektowaga, N.Y., won $1,300. In all, $15,000 in prize money was awarded among the 118 professional bowlers, who came from as far away as Savannah, Ga., Wesley Chapel, Fla., Niagara Falls, Rocky Mount, N.C., Central Islip, N.Y., and Providence, R.I., to compete in the open professional tournament.

Wiseman has bowled 37 career-300 games in PBA competition, and is the holder of 12 PBA Tour titles and seven PBA regional titles, including ones in Baltimore, Riverside, Calif., Seattle, St. Louis, Grand Rapids, Portland, and Las Vegas. The winner of the PBA 2004 USBC Masters and was ranked 42nd on list of “50 Greatest Players in PBA History” in 2009, Wiseman was inducted into the Baltimore and Maryland State USBC halls of fame this year.

“I dedicate this tournament to my mother,” said Wiseman, who had taken a leave of absence from tournament competition in order to care for his mother, who suffered a serious neurological disorder. Wiseman’s mother, who lives in Baltimore, was able to watch her son’s return to tournament form.

“We are very pleased and proud to witness Danny Wiseman’s triumph,” said Jim Miller, manager of Forest Hill Lanes. “He’s a local boy who’s done very well, and everyone here is happy to see him at the peak of his form.”
