    A New 14.1 stat or Not

    Scorekeeping for 14.1

    My take on scorekeeping for 14.1. Growing up playing on Brunswick equipment, the Gold Crowns always sported two counters on both sides of the foot rail. I would like to think Brunswick had the Straight Pool shooters in mind when they had that feature. One counter could be used for the rack...
