First Game of the 8eason Was Played
Saturday afternoon the first baseball
game of the season took place: Tub
varsity played a practice gamb'with
the law teanuaUAntelopexpark; ,win-
nmg oy tno narrow margin oi yjto. .
The game was largely sport, not
mucli baseball being played" by either
team, as both were trying out a nunit
ber of men.
Captain Waldron of the laws -was
the star of their team, batting 1000
and bringing in several of their nine.
For the varsity, Harris at shortstop
played the most consistent game,.
though Beltzer at third played well.
Coach Fox tried out numerous men
in the various inlleld positions. Dens
low at first, WllBon, Dudgeon and
IKein at second, Harris at shortstop,
and Beltzer at third. Olmstead, Blake,
Prouty and Ward all worked out lii
the box, but not very satisfactorily oii
account of 'the earliness of the season
Olmstead has some Bpeed, but does
not have very good control. Blak
pitched fairly well, as did Ward'.
Prouty was inclined to be wild, and d
little stage-struck, and could not use
his steam to advantage. Sturtonegger
played consistently behind the bat all
through the game.
The outlook on the whole is satis
factory. The boys lack experience,
but as Billy Foxsays, they are anxiou
to learn and willing to work and this
is what .counts,
