  • Daniel "Danny" Wiseman (born September 24, 1967) is a right-handed professional ten-pin bowler, member of the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA), and a PBA Hall of Famer.

    Wiseman joined the PBA in 1987, and won two titles in his first full season on the PBA Tour (1990). He also won multiple titles in 1991 and 1995, on his way to 12 titles overall. His best professional season was in 2004-05, when he cashed in all 21 events that he entered, made match play a career-high 18 times, won his only major title (2004 ABC Masters), and earned a career-best $186,050. Overall, Wiseman has more than $1.5 million in career PBA earnings. He has also thrown 43 career perfect 300 games in PBA competition (through 2012).

    Wiseman was an exempt player for the 2010-11 PBA season. He bowled in only six events of the 2009-10 season, but was granted a hardship exemption deferment due to him having to care for his ailing mother. His mother has since recovered from the sub-arachnid hemorrhage (brain bleed). Danny did not win a title in 2010-11, but earned enough points to retain his exemption for the 2011-12 season. The PBA Tour returned to an "open" (non-exempt) format for the 2012-13 season, but Wiseman has chosen to only participate part-time.

    Wiseman was ranked #42 on the PBA's 2008 list of "50 Greatest Players of the Last 50 Years". He was voted into the PBA Hall of Fame in January, 2013, and was officially inducted on March 30, 2013 (along with Doug Kent). Later in 2013, Danny was elected to the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame (induction November 14). He was the first tenpin bowler to ever be elected by that organization.
