LOS ANGELES, CA - The upcoming World Series of Bowling V - which takes place October 25-November 3 at the South Point Bowling Center in Las Vegas - is sure to add to the already great list of moments that have taken place on Xtra Frame in 2013.
The 60-plus hours of live preliminary-round coverage planned on Xtra Frame at this year's World Series will include all of the qualifying rounds in the four animal pattern championships - where four players will advance to the stepladder finals round on ESPN each day - plus all of the additional match play rounds that will determine the five finalists for the event's crown jewel - the PBA World Championship. The event is sold out with 240 of the world's best bowlers - from a record 22 countries - making the trek to become a part of history. Fans can watch all the action by signing up for Xtra Frame for just $7.99 per month, or $64.99 for a one-year subscription.
One exciting addition to Xtra Frame's WSOB V coverage will be long-time ESPN color commentator and PBA Hall-of-Famer Randy Pedersen calling the action alongside Mike J. Laneside during the Top 24 rounds of the animal pattern championships. Plus, the event will kick off with a special pay-per-view live event on October 25 called the High 5 Gear PBA League Challenge: USA vs. The World. The match will pit the top six International players entered into the World Series against the top six americans, with the teams captained by Australia's Jason Belmonte and the U.S.'s Sean Rash, respectively. Viewers who are not currently subscribers to Xtra Frame will be able to view the matches for just $5.
As a reminder of all of this great action coming up later in the month on Xtra Frame, we have compiled a list of "Xtra Frame's Greatest Hits - 2013" on the PBA Youtube Channel. The list includes Mika Koivuniemi and Osku Palermaa's 7-10 conversions, Joe Scarborough's historic 900 series, several 300 games (including one by the ageless Johnny Petraglia) and a number of tight matches and clutch performances from the PBA Tour, PBA50 Tour and PBA Regional action.
