BOWLING GLOVE Filed May 14, 1964 INVENTOR Lela nd H. Sh rey Fig.4

Bcg rvu-M y@ ATTORNEY United States Patent O 3,203,006 BOWLING GLOVE 'Leland H. Shirey, 2525 '6th Ave., 'Fort Worth, Tex. Filed May 14, 1964, Ser. No. 367,395 1 Claim. (Cl. 2-159) This invention relates to a bowling glove, and it concerns more particularly a weighted glove which is intended to 4be worn by a bowler on his left hand if he is right handed, and vice versa, to help him balance himself, as by lswinging his left arm downwardly from a forwardly extending, substantially horizontal position while at the same time swinging his right arm, which holds the ball, downwardly and forwardly from a rearwardly extending position.

A bowling ball, because of its large size and its weight, tends to throw the player off balance as the ball is rolled, and the player must swing his body or his arms, or both, as necessary to balance himself against the weight of the ball, which is increased many times, in proportion to the speed and force with which it is swung, as the ball is rolled.

While it would seem that a larger person may have less difficulty in keeping his balance than a smaller person, because of his weight, in practice this is not necessarily true, and a smaller player, because of his skill and agility, may be able to balance himself very Well, and some authorities have observed that women, who may be of smaller build and lighter weight, often are better able to place the ball in the center of the lane than men players.

In bowling a good player is careful to follow through, and the arm which holds the ball continues to be swung forwardly and then back again as the ball is released, and at the same time the other arm is in motion, moving in opposite directions whereby the desired .balance is maintained, the ball is aimed correctly, and the player does not lose his footing.

It has heretofore been proposed to provide a weighted glove for the hand that holds the ball, which in effect increases the weight of the ball and its momentum as it is rolled, whereby it is rolled with greater force and accuracy. The weighted portion of the glove is positioned on the back of the hand.

This invention contemplates a weighted glove which differs from the weighted glove next above referred to in that it is worn on the hand opposite the hand which holds the ball, and it includes a weight which in use is held in the palm of the hand, whereby it may be securely gripped by the player, yas an aid in executing his maneuvers, while at the same time increasing the effective weight of the hand and arm on which it is worn, and the balancing action of said arm as it is swung in opposite directions as the ball is rolled.

Another distinguishing feature of the invention is that the weighted portion of the glove is shaped to conform to the palm of the hand as well as the spherical surface of the ball, as when the ball is held momentarily in the hand on which the glove is worn preparatory to rolling it with the opposite hand.

The invention will be readily understood by referring to the following description yand the accompanying drawing, in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing the back of a hand having a bowling glove embodying the invention applied thereto;

FIG. 2 is a view similar to FIG. 1 showing the front of the hand with the glove in place;

3,203,006 Patented Aug. 31, 1965 ice FIG. 3 shows the front of the glove in its detached position;

FIG. 4 is a sectional view taken on the line 4 4 of FIG. 2; and

FIG. 5 is a perspective view showing in its detached position the weight which is secured in a pocket therefor in the palm of the glove as illustrated in FIGS. 2 to 4, inclusive.A

Referring to FIGS. 1, 2, and 4 of the drawing, the numeral 1 designates a hand which, as shown, is the left hand, and the numeral 2 indicates generally a bowling glove embodying the invention in place on the hand 1.

In use, the glove 2 may be worn on either hand, depending on whether the player is right or left handed. The hand 1, on which the glove 2 is worn, is the hand opposite the hand which carries the ball, shown fragmentarily in broken lines in FIG. 4 and indicated by the numeral 3.

The front 4 of the glove 2 advantageously may be made of leather .and the back 5 thereof may be made of cloth, for example, and the thumb and finger portions of the glove 2 may be cut away as at 6, 7 to provide openings for the thumb and ngers of -the hand 1, which are exposed.

A lead weight as hereinafter described, indicated by the numeral 8, is sewed in a pocket 9 therefor in the palm of the glove 2. The weight 8 is generally circular and has rounded edges, and is concave-convex whereby it is conformable to the palm of the hand 1 as well as to the spherical surface of the ball 3, as shown best in FIG. 4.

The diameter of the weight 8 and the pocket 9 together approach the length and width dimensions of the palm of the glove 2 whereby the weight 8 may be grasped firmly in the hand with the fingers of the hand 1 folded about it.

The weight 8 preferably is of predetermined standard weight, which advantageously may be of the order of about one pound, for example.

The invention may be modified in various ways without departing from the spirit and scope thereof.

I claim:

In a weighted glove for use in bowling, intended to be worn on the hand of a player opposite the hand which holds the ball, as an aid to the player in balancing himself against the weight of the ball as the ball is rolled, the combination of a iingerless glove having a single lead weight of predetermined, selected weight, of the order of about one pound, secured in a pocket therefor in the palm of the glove, said weight being generally circular and being concave-convex whereby it is conformable to the hand of the player and to the spherical surface of the ball, `as in holding the ball momentarily in the hand on which the glove is worn preparatory to rolling it with the opposite hand, and said weight being comparatively thin relative to its diameter and having a diameter smaller than the length and width dimensions of the palm of the glove whereby said weight is adapted to be grasped firmly in the hand `of the player to further assist him in executing his manuvers.
