At 5 feet 5 and 115 pounds, Chris Warren, 27, looks more suited to riding a racehorse than rolling a bowling ball for a living. Fellow pros affectionately call him "Squeaky" because of his highpitched Texas twang, which fans heard very little of until last year. After five hard-to-make-a-buck years, Warren finally landed in the limelight on the national tournament tour of the Pro Bowlers Assn. He finished 1990 with the most individual titles--four--and was second in earnings, with $197,185.
