If you are a right handed bowler your natural pocket would be the 1-3. If you throw a ball that hits the 1-2 pocket, that would be considered the 'Jersey' or "Brooklyn' side. It is just the opposite for a lefty. A lefty's pocket would be the 1-2 and if they threw a ball that hit the 1-3 pocket, that would be considered 'Jersey' or 'Brooklyn'.
