In the Pocket: Burton enjoys providing competition in A.L.B.A.N.Y. bowling series

Jim Burton is still a threat on the lanes at age 79. His Amateur League Bowlers Association of New York monthly tournament series for league bowlers with averages less than 215 kicks off Sunday at Sportsman’s Bowl.

Affable Jim Burton gets a big kick out of providing average league bowlers a chance to compete in a tournament format with his popular Amateur League Bowlers Association of New York (A.L.B.A.N.Y.) monthly series. He also enjoys helping anyone who needs a little improvement in their game.

He happily gives lessons — especially in his unusual one-step approach. But most of all, this 79-year-old late bloomer loves to knock down the pins, and he still does so with surprising authority.

Burton’s first A.L.B.A.N.Y. event of the season is Sunday at 9:30 a.m. at Sportsman’s Bowl. Only bowlers with established tournament averages under 215 are eligible for this “bonus” competition. Usually, Burton allows all bowlers with sanctioned averages less than 215 to compete, but with the season being so young, entrants don’t have the required 21 games in yet. He keeps the entry fee down, usually $50 or under, and he pays out many more spots than the average tournament.

Still a strong scratch bowler despite his age, Burton has helped Jeff Segel run many scratch tournaments since moving to the Capital Region 12 years ago from Michigan, and he still dabbles in that arena. But he’s found a niche in catering to the league bowler with handicap.

“I wanted to give an opportunity for bowlers to experience the fun of tournament play, but I wanted to limit it to those bowlers with averages under 215,” Burton said. “It’s worked out pretty well so far. I’m actually a little surprised it hasn’t grown even bigger, but I think COVID slowed it down last year. We were getting roughly 80 bowlers per event. I think we got 82 or 83 at Uncle Sam Lanes for one tournament. We wanted to do something for the everyday player, and it has become pretty popular for those who gave it a chance. Those who have tried it have really enjoyed it.

“I try to stay away from paying out too much for first place, and instead I pay out more spots. If you can get more people to cash and give them a little piece of the action, they will enjoy it. Only one person can win, but if you expand the payout and pay less on top, paying deeper into the field, more people will enjoy the experience.”

Burton said that the average bowler also complains less than the scratch bowlers about lane conditions, payouts and format. His tournaments are very simple. Bowlers roll three games on the same pair, and the top bowlers with handicap get paid.

When Burton first came to the Capital Region, his initial tournament offering was called the New Era Senior Tour (NEST) for bowlers age 50 and older. He ran these events for several years, but despite its popularity to its core competitors, the NEST never took off the way Burton had hoped.

“We ran the NEST for five years or so, and we tried five different formats for the senior scratch bowlers. But we couldn’t come up with a product that the bowlers wanted after several experiments,” he said.

Burton was born in Queens, but his local ties began with his father, George.

“My father was a newspaper man, and he got a job writing bowling column in the late 1950s when bowling was big,” Burton explained. “And my mother was a very good bowler who averaged in the high 180s back in the 1950s. She was an even better instructor who traveled with Billy Welu to run clinics. She was on the Brunswick advisory staff.”

Burton’s father was also a beat writer for the New York Yankees.

“When I had my first Little League game, Enos Slaughter and Bill ‘Moose’ Skowran came to celebrate the opener,” Burton recalled.

Eventually, Burton’s father moved the family to Detroit to work at the Detroit Times, but that paper was bought out by the Detroit News, which already had a bowling columnist. His father was set to take a writing job in Chicago, but accepted a job back here in the Capital Region instead, serving as the executive director of the Northeast Bowling Proprietors of New York. George Burton served in that position for many years and ran the very popular Match Game Championship, which offered the top local bowler a berth in the U.S. Open.

Jim Burton, meanwhile, became an excellent junior bowler under his mother’s tutelage. He won five or six Cecil Ward Junior Bowling Tournaments.

“My mom was working at Oxford Lanes, and whenever I was in a little funk, and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with my game, I’d go to the lanes and ask my mom to watch me. I’d throw a few games, and she didn’t appear to be watching me, but after 15 minutes or so, she would tell me something like my first step was way too big or that I had a little timing issue. I would immediately improve. From listening to my mother teach, I gained an interest in the finer details of the game, mostly timing oriented,” Burton said.

Meanwhile, Burton stayed in Michigan to attend Eastern Michigan University, where he bowled on the college team. For 30 years, after college, Burton bowled just once a week with the same five guys in a league. He loved the game, but rarely bowled in tournaments any longer.

But when his marriage ended, he rediscovered tournament bowling and joined the National Senior Bowling Association.

“I won nine or 10 of their tournaments, and then I started getting really serious about bowling,’ he said.“I started paying attention to what I was doing, and I worked hard on my game. I was a late bloomer.

From age 50 to age 65, Burton won a number of NSBA tournaments. He captured the Metro Detroit Seniors Masters — “that was a really big deal,” he said — and was named to the Detroit All Star team two years in a row.

“The difference in Detroit bowling was that they had 60,000 bowlers in their association,” Burton explained.

At age 52, he rolled his first 300 game in 1994, and after he rolled the first 10 strikes, the entire house — with more than 200 bowlers — stopped to watch him complete the perfecto.

Burton, who once earned $9,000 for winning the Senior High Rollers in Las Vegas, eventually recorded 14 300 games and seven 800 triples. His high triple of 826 was after coming to the Capital Region and competing in the Blizzard Bowl at Boulevard Bowl.

When he started the NEST tournaments with Tom Newman, Burton not only helped run those events but also was one of their top competitors. He won an all-time best eight NEST titles. He also won a now-defunct Huck Finn tournament championship. He’s accomplished all of this while utilizing a one-step approach forced on him because of some physical problems that make it difficult for him to use a normal four- or five-step approach. He also has a skin condition which limits his time outdoors, so he can no longer golf or fish. That’s one of the reason bowling has become such an obsession.

Burton’s highest league average since coming to the Capital Region was a 232. He also carried a 230 average while bowling in the Green Island Lanes summer league.

Currently, he’s averaging 223 on Monday afternoons and 214 on Wednesdays in a pair of leagues at Town & Country Lanes in Guilderland. He still enjoys competing in various tournaments when he has an opportunity, and even though he’s pushing 80, his expectations of his bowling performances remain extremely high every time he steps on the lanes.
