Alfred (Lindy) Faragalli

Alfred (Lindy) Faragalli was a bowler who could perform under pressure. In 1957 Lindy bowled a perfect game before a live studio audience in Chicago and won the $10,000 jackpot. Success continued for Lindy who one year later won the ABC Title Championship.

Faragalli’s skill and precision made him a force to be reckoned with during his professional bowling career, most notably with the Faber Cement Blocks. In 1968 the United States Bowling Congress Hall of Fame acknowledged his contributions and dedication to the sport of bowling by making him an honorary inductee.

He was inducted into the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame in 2008.
