Steve Nagy
Birth: Aug. 10, 1913
Death: Nov. 11, 1966

Professional Bowler. Born in Shoaf, Pennslyvainia, he began his competitive career at age seventeen in the 1939 ABC tournament. After World War II, he became a member of Brunswick's promotional team and was named bowler of the year when he won the ABC all-events championship in 1952. In 1954, he became the first bowler ever to roll a perfect 300 game on television. He was chosen bowler of the year for the second time after winning the BPAA All-Star tournament in 1955. He was a founding member of the Professional Bowling Association, served as PBA President (1963-64) and was posthumously inducted into the Professional Bowling Association Hall of Fame in 1977. The PBA's annual Nagy Sportsmanship Award is named in his honor. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
