Today in History: The Modern Bowling Ball was Invented

According to multiple sources, today marks the anniversary of the day that the modern bowling ball was invented. 

Actually, it is stated that the wooden version of the modern bowling ball was invented on this day in 1862.  Today, they use some sort of plastic/polyester compound.

Truthfully, the game of bowling can be traced back to when the Egyptians used stones for their balls. Over time the equipment for the sport became more sophisticated and advanced.

Today bowling is a widely popular recreational activity. Currently, the largest bowling center is located in Japan.
