Lindsey was one of the first of the game's colorful performers, a delightful storyteller, an admirer of good food and a fearless competitor under any conditions. The three-time champion started bowling in 1902 but leaned toward semi-pro baseball as a catcher and also was proficient at billiards. At age 64, he finished fourth in the Bowlers Journal tournament and until age slowed him a few years later, he entered many events where most of the competitors were less than half his age.
