The Clowns were founded in 1935 in Miami, Florida by Hunter Campbell and Johnny Pierce as the Miami Giants, however quickly changed its name to the Ethiopian Clowns. Sid Pollock promoted and popularised the Clowns, developing them into a nationally-known combination of show business and baseball, earning them the designation as the “Harlem Globetrotters of baseball”.
