Dick Weber
City: St. Louis

Inducted: 1970

No bowler has spanned decades of superior performance better than this Indianapolis native who won pro tournaments in six decades. Weber came on the scene in the 1950s with the fabled Budweisers of St. Louis and has won major titles in nearly every portion of the United States. The three-time Bowler of the Year won one USBC Open Championships title, is a four-time All-Star champion and teamed with Ray Bluth to win four BPAA doubles crowns and was a member of six BPAA national team champions. Weber was voted to the Bowling Magazine All-America first team 11 times. He was edged by teammate Don Carter in 1970 voting for the honor of Greatest Bowler of All-Time but was chosen as the best in the 1900s in a 1999 Bowling Magazine poll. As a member of the Buds, Weber bowled 258, 258, 259 when the team posted the longtime record 3,858 in 1958.
