The Greater Hartford Pro-Am was founded by Peter Higgins after being introduced to the Hampton Roads Pro-Am while residing in Norfolk, Virginia. Once he returned to his hometown of Hartford, CT Mr. Higgins saw a tremendous opportunity to run a successful summer Pro-Am league especially since, in 1997, the State of Connecticut was in a frenzy over the success of the women’s and men’s UConn basketball teams.
So, Mr. Higgins put up his own money, gathered the best ball players he could, including Marcus Camby, Vin Baker and…oh yes…an up and coming NBA champion named Ray Allen…and made the magic of the Greater Hartford Pro-Am come alive at Hartford High.

Army National Guard
The Army National Guard (ARNG) is one component of The Army (which consists of the Active Army, the Army National Guard and the Army Reserve.) The Army National Guard is composed primarily of traditional Guardsmen -- civilians who serve their country, state and community on a part-time basis (usually one weekend each month and two weeks during the summer.) Each state, most territories and the District of Columbia has its own National Guard, as provided for by the Constitution of the United States. The National Guard has a unique dual mission that consists of both Federal and State roles. For state missions, the governor, through the state Adjutant General, commands Guard forces. The governor can call the National Guard into action during local or statewide emergencies, such as storms, fires, earthquakes or civil disturbances. In addition, the President of the United States can activate the National Guard for participation in federal missions. Examples of federal activations include Guard units deployed to Kosovo and the Sinai for stabilization operations, and units deployed to the Middle East and other locations in the war on terrorism. When federalized, Guard units are commanded by the Combatant Commander of the theatre in which they are operating.
