In a twist on the PBA Clash format we’ve seen over the past couple years, the upcoming PBA League All-Star Clash will allow each player’s teammates to have some skin in the game.

The All-Star Clash will be broadcast on FOX on Nov. 29 at either 2:30 p.m. Eastern or 4:30 p.m. Eastern depending on the NFL game in each television market. For international subscribers, it will be broadcast at 2:30 p.m. Eastern on FloBowling.

One player from each PBA League team will compete in the All-Star Clash and the higher they finish, the more they and their teammates will earn. First place in the event is $50,000.

The lineup of players features PBA Hall of Famers, top stars and top women as the players were selected to represent their teams based on who had the highest number of titles.

Here’s the list of players who will participate along with their team and number of titles. The list is in the order in which they will appear on the show.

  1. Norm Duke, Dallas Strikers, 40 PBA titles
  2. Dom Barrett, Philadelphia Hitmen, 8 PBA titles
  3. Walter Ray Williams Jr., Brooklyn Styles, 47 PBA titles
  4. Chris Barnes, Silver Lake Atom Splitters, 19 PBA titles
  5. Francois Lavoie, Las Vegas High Rollers, 4 PBA titles
  6. Liz Johnson, Phoenix Fury, 24 PWBA titles
  7. Pete Weber, NYC KingPins, 37 PBA titles
  8. EJ Tackett, Motown Muscle, 13 PBA titles
  9. Wes Malott, Portland Lumberjacks, 10 PBA titles
  10. Jason Belmonte, L.A.X, 25 PBA titles
  11. Sean Rash, Brew City Ballers, 16 PBA titles
  12. Danielle McEwan, Miami Waves, 5 PWBA titles

Similar to previous iterations of the Clash format, the players will compete in a one-ball elimination format. The player with the lowest score each round is eliminated. If there’s a tie, the one-ball format continues among those tied until a player is eliminated.
