    LAKE FOREST, Ill., April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- All eyes were on the Viz-A-

 the pins.  Brunswick Bowling and Billiards Corp. (NYSE:   BC) created a

     Viz-A-Ball is a breakthrough in bowling ball design, created using a 360-
 degree printing process that allows Brunswick to print any image on a bowling
 ball.  The Viz-A-Ball collection was recently introduced at the Museum of
 Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and is available at the Viz-A-Ball.com Web
 site (http://www.vizaball.com ).
     The specially designed Reggie Bowl Viz-A-Ball was a big hit for celebrity
 bowlers, such as N'SYNC, Miller's Indiana Pacer teammates, Pacer's Head Coach
 Isiah Thomas and others.  Miller signed a few of the special Reggie Bowl Viz-
 A-Balls which were auctioned at the event with proceeds going to The Reggie
 Miller Foundation.
     "Brunswick has been a long time supporter of Reggie Bowl," says Jerry
 Perkins, General Manager, Brunswick Bowling Products.  "We are very pleased
 that Viz-A-Ball could help raise funds for The Reggie Miller Foundation. Viz-
 A-Ball is a fun and unique way to personalize the event for Reggie and those
 who came to support the important work the Foundation funds."
