Maynard (Pidd) Piddington was born in Platteville, Wisconsin on March 26, 1928. He moved to Harford County in 1958 and currently resides in Havre de Grace with Kathryn, his wife of 37 years.
Pidd was graduated from Platteville State Teachers College in 1950, then served in the U.S. Army from 1951-52. He retired in 1981 after 30 years of government service as an Aero-Space Engineer at Aberdeen Proving Ground.
During his early years Pidd excelled as a hard hitting first baseman for the semi-pro Platteville Cardinals baseball team. He compiled a lifetime batting average of .365 and in 1989 was inducted into the Platteville Cardinals Hall of Fame and named first baseman on their All Time All Star Team.
Beginning bowling at age 27, Pidd quickly established himself as one of the area's top competitors. He has won seven Maryland State titles: team, singles, and all events in 1970, team in 1971 and 1978, and doubles in 1972 and 1976. Pidd added four Cecil-Harford Association titles: team and all events in 1969 and doubles in 1971 and 1974. He also added two Baltimore Association titles in 1969: team and all events. With age, Pidd seems to get better. He won the Maryland State Seniors title (Class D) in 1989.
1985 was a memoriable year as Pidd teamed with Art Reynolds to place second in the doubles event at the ABC National Championship Tournament in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Pidd has rolled three 800 three game series in his career: 834,807, and 806. He has rolled one 300 game in additional to one 299 and one 298.
In recognition of his outstanding achievements on the lanes, the Cecil-Harford Counties Bowling Association is proud to induct Maynard J. Piddington into its Hall of Fame in the Superior Performance Category.
