From Outer Space to the Hoop Hall

(L-R) Springfield (MA) Mayor Domenic Sarno, Harlem Globetrotters mascot Globie, and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Vice Presidents Paul Lambert and Scott Zuffelato pose with the Globetrotters team basketball that flew aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis mission to the Hubble Telescope in June, along with a commemorative plaque from the Atlantis crew, outside the Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA on Thursday. Globie parachuted from 3,000 feet onto the Hall of Fame grounds to make the official presentation to the Hall of Fame, where the Globetrotters are one of only six teams ever to be inducted.
