Bowling to continue this spring training

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Mets, who annually have a team-building weekly bowling competition, will continue that practice this spring training.

The Mets lost top bowler Tim Byrdak, who put up professional-type scores and remains a free agent. They also lost John Buck, who signed with the Seattle Mariners. Buck became so hooked by the weekly bowling sessions he installed an alley in his Utah home.
