Ray Bluth was a St. Louis hero. He had deep roots in the community and made a name for himself as a star bowler long before joining the Budweisers team in 1954. Bluth held a number of records, both with the team and as an individual player. Bluth would go on to own and manage bowling alleys, give in-person demonstrations and meet-and-greets, and serve as a spokesman for Ebonite bowling balls. He would be inducted into both the USBC and PBA Halls of Fame.
