MUSKEGON, MI — A Michigan man demolished his home’s back landing and discovered 160 bowling balls underneath the stairs.  David Olson said he noticed a spherical object in the sand behind some cinder blocks while dismantling the stairs behind his Muskegon home on July 1.

In the days that followed, Olson continued to dig and discovered 160 bowling balls.  The house was erected in 1959, while the Brunswick Bowling Products factory in Muskegon before the company moved its operations to Mexico.

Former Brunswick employees contacted Olson on social media, claiming that it was normal practice for workers to take unused balls home and use them as a substitute for gravel or sand in building projects.
