Which would probably be Camp Campbell Isclf for the Army, Great Lakes for the Nuvy, and Purris Island for the Marines. Attracting the most publicity of any service team, Mickey Coch- rnne's Oi'eut Lakes service team is sometimes called the seventeenth major league teum. His roster is .stuffed with former big leaguers. Cocbrane's nine bus whipped major league teams, minor league out- IHs, and other service squads.
