Meet PBA Hall of Fame Bowler Mark Roth's cat - "Godzilla"

Bowlers Journal International launches Youtube channel After over a hundred years the best bowling magazine in the World has finally launched their Youtube channel. With so much rich history of bowling to feature, the team decided to go with a fun video to start with. A cat that bowls is the sort of video that goes viral quickly, what if the cat is owned by none other than PBA legend Mark Roth.

Roth, originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., attacked the Tour with a cranking, hard-throwing style which created a generation of imitators now prevalent throughout the sport. Never one to rest on his laurels, Roth not only surpassed the great Earl Anthony's all-time PBA earnings record on the 1987 Fall Tour, but also added his 33rd PBA title in the Greater Buffalo Open and won the No. 1 PBA invitational in Toronto. Roth won PBA Player of the Year honors in 1977, 1978, 1979 and 1984. He led the Tour in average in six different seasons, including a then-record 221.699 in '79.

Another of his records is the eight titles he won in 1978, which he followed with seven titles in 1979. Is one of three players to earn both PBA and PBA50 Player of the Year honors. Finished his career with 34 Tour titles and $1,619,136 in earnings. He also owns two PBA50 Tour titles.
