The PBA Hall of Famer defeated 10-time PBA Tour titlist Bryan Goebel of Shawnee, Kan., 227-226, in the title match for his 10th career PBA50 Tour title and his first since winning the PBA Senior Pepsi Open in Decatur, Ill. in August of 2010. His 10 PBA50 titles now matches his 10 PBA Tour titles.
“I knew it was just a matter of time before I’d win again, I just didn’t think it
would take this much time,” said the 58-year-old Baker. “Over the past few years I
was always qualifying well, but couldn’t seal the deal in match play. I finally got
it done today.”
