NO PINS SPARED: Members of the 2019 MGH Bowling League.

Flashback Friday is an installment highlighting stories from MGH history. MGH Hotline spent some spare time in the hospital archives to highlight the 70-year history of the MGH Bowling League.

“The soft ball enthusiasts of the M.G.H. are now planning a Winter of bowling ending with a dinner and the awarding of a Championship Cup” read the September 1949 edition of The World of MGH, an employee newsletter publication and precursor toMGH Hotline. Seventy years later, MGH employees continue to hit the alley in hopes of hoisting the coveted Championship Cup.
