Thank you Stu. I was hoping you'd help out here!
The first three players you mentioned - Tom Jennings, Eddie Kelly, and Frank McGowan - they are still around, correct? I know it's very morbid to ask that question, but if we don't limit the list to "alive" then we are really opening a whole can of worms. There is no way we could hope to get a list of every person who ever lived who ran 200, but we might be able to do a decent job of every person currently around who did.
Good calls on the Bill Dunsmore and Earl Herring. I am fairly certain I had already added Tommy Ruocco to the Possibles.
Thanks for the info on Parica.
P.S. I also added Ryan McCreesh, as I do remember him telling me he ran 200+ just before last year's Maryland tournament.
Eddie Kelly is alive. I saw him in 2009. Tom Jennings would only be in his 60's, I'd guess, though I haven't heard of him in years, as he retired very young. Frank McGown I simply can't say. My guess is that he'd be in his 70's. Perhaps someone on the forum knows him, and can help us out here.
Another "possible" is Martin Kempter of Austria, who ran 160 vs Dennis Hatch in the 2007 World 14.1 event, as is Huidji See of the Netherlands, who seems to run over 100 almost every year at Derby City and has two different top five finishes in the World 14.1 championships.
Rico Diks, Greg Fix, and Jack Hynes all 200 ball runners Teddy G also ran 200 if my memory serves me correctly was talking to a AZ member about a year ago that was a 300+ ball runner older gentlemen believe his first name was Pat Howery (i think) he was the real deal. How about guys that gave up the game but played like god people like the Hawk Bernie Scwartz anyone know if he ran 200? I would think there would be more guys from the east coast then are listed but Steve Lipisky would know so I defer
Can you be more specific? These are people you are sure have run over 200 (if so, how?), or are you just saying that they should go on the "possibles" list?
