Voting Is Underway For 2020 PBA Player Of The Year

2020 PBA POY Candidates.jpg

The ballots are out and votes are currently being cast for the 2020 PBA Player of the Year honor.

The PBA sent the ballot out this week to a selected panel of bowling writers and the entire PBA membership and the winner will be announced Dec. 18.

The players up for the PBA’s most prestigious award include Jason Belmonte, Bill O’Neill, Kris Prather, Sean Rash, Anthony Simonsen, Jesper Svensson, EJ Tackett and Kyle Troup.

Because of “complications created by the COVID-19 pandemic” the PBA said will not award the PBA Rookie of the Year honor in 2020. Instead, those players who were rookies this year will be eligible in 2021.

So, while the writers and players are casting their votes, we want to know what YOU think. Below is our annual poll of the fans to see who you think should be the PBA’s Player of the Year for 2020.

To help you in casting your vote, here’s a link to the same stats the voters use to help them make their decision.

Now, it’s time to vote!
