Lightning Twice

Reznik disproves his own prophecy.

Steve Stein

Special to The Jewish News


'nai B'rith bowler Rick
Reznik threw a 300 game
Nov. 5. It was a remarkable
achievement for someone who sat out
the past two seasons because of work
and the feeling he was getting burned
out on bowling.
"That will be my first
and last 300 game
Reznik declared. "It's
so difficult to do. Even
if you throw 12 perfect
balls, there's no guaran-
tee they'll all be strikes!'
Reznik was wrong.
The right-hander threw
another 300 during
Jacobson League play
Jan. 14 at Country Lanes
in Farmington Hills.
Rick Reznik
The latest 300 was a
nice birthday present
for Reznik's mother, Judy Reznik of
Oak Park. And, while it was the 11th
perfect game in Brotherhood-Eddie
Jacobson's 46-year history, it's the first
time a bowler has rolled two in the
same season.
Dennis Horwitz, Reznik's team-
mate and longtime friend, is the only
other Brotherhood-Eddie Jacobson
bowler with two perfect games. It was
Horwitz who urged Reznik to return to
the league he first joined in 1993.
Reznik's series Jan. 14 was 300-195-
182-677. As always, making spares
was a problem for the 38-year-old
Bloomfield Hills resident. Reznik con-
verted just two all night. His 182 game
contained eight strikes and no spares.
Just two lucky shots — both
Brooklyn hits — were needed in
Reznik's 300 game. The other 10 shots
were right in the pocket.
Reznik's series Nov. 5 was 300-253-
186-739. He began the second game
with two open frames, then reeled off
10 consecutive strikes.
