Globetrotters return to Birmingham

The Harlem Globetrotters are returning to Birmingham for the team's 2014 "Fans Rule" World Tour. It's their 88th consecutive season of touring the world. The Globetrotters will play at the Pete Hanna Center at Samford University on Sunday, March 16, at 4 p.m.

The Globetrotters were the first organization in sports and entertainment to let fans vote on rules for the game.{} The team introduced the concept last year. The fan response was so overwhelming, the team is doing it again, with more revolutionary rules to choose from. Also this year, fans can dance along with the team doing The Trotter Bounce, a new dance created for the Globetrotters by world renowned dancer and choreographer Mark Ballas of "Dancing with the Stars."
