Harlem Globetrotters Tour History

The history of the legendary Harlem Globetrotters can be traced all the way back to 1926 when a young man named Abe Saperstein joined together a talented group of basketball players from Chicago named the "Savoy Big Five". This talented troupe would play exhibition games before dances at the Savoy Ballroom in Chicago, giving the group their name. In 1927, they played their first game as the Harlem New York Globetrotters, and soon began touring nearby states, playing games almost every day. By 1934, the Harlem Globetrotters had played 1,000 games, touring from coast to coast. Still true to this day, the Globetrotters are not known for losing, in fact they once won 8,829 games in a row, yet in 1939, they lost their first tournament. By this time, comedy and routines had been added to the Harlem Globetrotters repertoire, separating themselves from the other traveling teams of the time. Reese "Goose" Tatum joined the franchise in 1941, bringing with him most of the now classic Globetrotters comedy routines that are still thrilling fans today. As the decades went by, the Globetrotters began taking on college and professional teams across the country. By the 1950's, the Harlem Globetrotters were everywhere, including playing the first night game at Chicago's famed Wrigley Field in 1954, the same year the Globetrotters won the World Series of Basketball for the fifth straight year. The Harlem Globetrotters were officially a pop culture phenomenon, with names like Wilt "The Stilt" Chamberlain, Hubert "Geese" Ausbie and Fed "Curly" Neal and they could be seen everywhere from New York City to China to primetime network variety shows. As the NBA rose to prominence in the world of basketball, the Harlem Globetrotters began to take a backseat. Instead of folding, they reinvented themselves with the help of famous athletes and celebrities like famed pitcher Bob Gibson, Magic Johnson and incredible feats like Michael "Wild Thing" Johnson's record setting 12 foot dunk. They have been everywhere from Moscow to Kuwait and played for fans and dignitaries like Pope John Paul II and Nelson Mandela. They signed the first professional female basketball players and were the first franchise owned by an African-American. The Harlem Globetrotters are an integral part of the history and culture of the 20th Century and are truly a part of the American fabric.
