They would play exibition games and would also play local teams if their respective schedules would permit. Name as many players as you can that played for that Globetrotter team.
    Oh, you mean the Yankees?

    The Trotters also had a softball team many years ago. In August, 1948, they played an exhibition game against a local slow pitch (16") team at Lane Tech High School Stadium on Chicago's North Side. It was the second game of a double-header. The Trotters used gloves since they normally played 12" fast pitch. I attended the games with some friends, and the crowd was having a great time, until the PA announcer told us that Babe Ruth had just died. Needless to say, that ended the fun.

    I believe Gibson was a forward. He was a serious player, meaning he didn't get into the court tricks like his teammates.
