He was well known for having a “cannon” arm, and was infamous for throwing a ball over the backstop from deep center field. Larry also spent many years participating in the men’s bowling league. He was a high average scorer and was one of a few Kemmerer kegglers to bowl over a 700 series and a high game of 279.
