Pioneer

Louis Stein
City: New York City
State: NY
Inducted: 1997

Stein far outlived his fellow ABC founding fathers, but is best known for waging a tough battle in the first ABC meeting in 1895 to make 12 consecutive strikes a 300 game, rather than continuing with 200 as the maximum. Stein himself eventually achieved perfection seven times. For many years he operated a six-lane center near Times Square.
