from June 1952 Hoof Beats and Sulky Notes column:

Stan Bergstein, the man who's been engaged to call the races at Maywood Park, Northville Downs and Wolverine Raceway, also has been chief announcer for the Harlem Globe Trotters, internationally famous basketball team. This past cage season Stan traveled over 40,000 miles and visited in 45 states from October 19, 1951, through April 13, 1952. Two days later he was back at his announcer's booth atop the Maywood grandstand.

BTW, a few weeks ago and in some correspondence, he Stan provided that most of those miles were travelled in a then brand new Studebaker Champion.

The Globetrotters used to routinely beat the best teams in the NBA. They are very skilled.

somehow every time they switched the bucket of water for the bucket of confetti I didn't see it coming. What a great show. When I was a kid got to  see them once and it was a thrill.
