started pitching in competition in 1966. He pitched in Class "A"
in most of his tournaments. His ringer percentage was mostly in the
60's. In State Championship participation he finished as high as runner
up and twice in fourth place. He pitched four years in New England
Tournaments, seven times in Massachusetts State Tournaments, four times
in the Maine Open and twice in the Keene Open.
His outstanding tournament was in the 1969 State when he pitched 67 percent to finish in second place.
It is thought that his pitching records would have been even better if he had not worked as an organizer when he was sometimes a tournament director.
It is rumored that Nelson is seriously considering returning to the sport in 1982.
