World Series is full

The 2010 PBA World Series of Bowling reached its capacity of 256 players on Tuesday, with former exempt player Tony Reyes of San Bruno, Calif., claiming the final spot.

The next step is filling the spectator area at South Point Bowling Center in Las Vegas with PBA fans to help kick off the 2010-11 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour season.

And during the first week of qualifying, you might find yourself seated next to Susie Anthony. The wife of the late PBA superstar Earl Anthony has confirmed she intends to attend the entire first week of World Series action to visit with old friends and watch the competition.
