Dick Groat, Cliff Hagan, Lou Tsiropolous and Bill Cosby played service ball in the D.C. area- and Archie Clark was discovered by a University of Minnesota recruiter while playing at Andrews AFB.

McKinley Tech High School great Stan “Snookie” Kernan played on a young summer league team that won a league championship featuring some of the aforementioned service players. They were the only schoolboys in the league.
