The world famous Harlem Globetrotters will take fan interaction to a new level when the 2014 “Fans Rule” World Tour comes to MassMutual Center in Springfield on Wednesday, Feb. 19 and Thursday, Feb. 20. Both games are at 7 p.m. Online voting is now open at harlemglobetrotters.com/rule, where all fans can choose which new game-changing rules they want to see in their hometown.
The 2014 online ballot includes three never-before-seen revolutionary rules:
- Hot Hand Jersey – Both teams will have a “Hot Hand Jersey” they can pass among each other. The player who is wearing this jersey will receive double points on made baskets.
- Make or Miss – The quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the game. When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded.
- Trick Shot Challenge – Via three challenge flags per team, each coach can challenge the other team to make a trick shot. If the team makes the trick shot, they earn five points. If they miss, the other team receives five points.
Tickets start at $16 and are now available at harlemglobetrotters.com, ticketmaster.com, the MassMutual Center Box Office, or by phone at 800-745-3000. For information on group and scout tickets, call 413-271-3223
