|June 10, 1945, program for US Army Services Baseball game held at Chelsea Football Grounds, Stamford Bridge, London.
The two teams – the Whites and the Grays – were made up of minor league and major league players stationed in England.
Mostly minor league players, but I have been able to note Paul Campbell, Ted Kleinhans and Dan Carnevale.
Before an estimated crowd of 12,000, the 46-year-old Kleinhans captained the Grays and led them to a 7-5 victory, hurling the first five innings and allowing four hits and three runs.
The most notable name on the program may be that of Umpire Scotty Robb. Scotty Robb had a very distinguished career as an Umpire in both the NL and AL.
