Harlem Globetrotters basketball team played a Booster Club benefit game in the old Wa-Hi gym on Park Street in January 1965. An autographed ball was presented to a young girl at half-time. What is the girl's name? In January 1958, the Globetrotters played a game in the same venue and gave an autographed ball to Wayne Dickey, Jr. of Walla Walla. And in July 1948 the Harlem Globetrotters played a baseball game in Borleske Stadium (photos wanted).
