Fred Wolf
City: Detroit
State: MI
Inducted: 1976

Wolf was an outstanding bowler and a member of the powerful Strohs Beer team for seven years. But his greatest mark was made in radio and television as a bowling commentator in Detroit. He covered the 1948 ABC Tournament from a booth behind the scoremarkers for 80 consecutive nights. He moved into television the next year and had a succession of popular local shows which led to a network opportunity with the Championship Bowling series.
