Bowling: Is there a way to resurface a rubber bowling ball to be allowed use on synthetic lanes?

I inherited a rubber bowling ball from someone who I cared deeply for and it has lots of sentimental value. Every bowling alley I go to tells me it doesn’t allow for these old bowling balls because it makes skid marks on the lanes. Is there any way to resurface it so that it can use it on synthetic lanes? Is there any hope for this to be still used?
