Harlem Globetrotter Bulldog visits children’s hospital

With a spinning basketball on his finger and popular dance moves that all the kids know, Harlem Globetrotter Bulldog Mack entertained patients in the Children’s Hospital of Georgia Thursday as part of the team’s Smile Patrol.

The Harlem Globetrotters Smile Patrol is a community outreach program in which the team visits over 100 children’s hospitals annually to share laughs, take pictures and display their ball-handling skills with fans unable to attend a game.

Mack is a native of Huntsville, Alabama, and a graduate of Freed-Hardeman University. He is also the second in his family to be a member of the Globetrotters.
