As a tribute to fallen friend and fellow competitor Tony Reyes, PBA Tour players will wear a special black-and-silver “TR” emblem during competition in the months ahead. The special TR logo reflects the colors of Reyes’ favorite sports team, the Oakland Raiders.
While supplies last, the “TR” patches will be available through the PBA office (and on-site at all PBA tournaments) for $5 each, with all proceeds benefitting Reyes’ family. To order, send a check or money order (sorry, no credit cards accepted) to: PBA, c/o TR emblem, 719 Second Ave., Suite 701, Seattle, WA 98104. Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery (emblems have just been ordered).
The tribute emblem is just one in a growing number of memorials and benefits to the 38-year-old, one-time PBA Tour champion from San Bruno, Calif., who died as a result of injuries sustained in a traffic accident on Sept. 28 in northern California.
