Carolyn Dorin-Ballard talks about Ballard vs. The Big 'C' 2012 Event!

 

Del Ballard, Jr.

Before coming to work at Storm Ballard bowled on the PBA tour 1984-1998. He then became the tour rep for Ebonite until 2001, when Del decided to bowl again on the PBA National Tour until 2007. During that time Ballard was also was a sales rep for Roto Grip during 2004 and 2005. After bowling on the tour ended, he went to work for Brunswick Bowling & Billiards, traveling around the country showing league bowlers how to bowl on PBA experience patterns and to make it fun to bowl on a competitive lane conditions.  He also gave lessons during this time.

When Ballard left Brunswick in 2009, he was hired by the USBC in the International Coaching department to travel around the world and train people in other countries to become coaches. Some of the countries he covered were France, Italy, and the UAE. He held clinics and trained their national teams to help them perform better and receive more funding from their governments.

When he left the USBC in 2010 Del returned as the tour rep for Ebonite until he was diagnosed with tonsil cancer in May 2011. After treatments and his doctors ok, he continued to rep until mid-2011. He was then reunited with Storm again in later 2011, where he is currently serves as the PBA National Tour Rep for Storm, Roto Grip and Master Industries Worldwide.

Del recently underwent heart by-pass and valve surgery and is recovering comfortably in Texas.  Hopes to be back out working in the very near future.
