THE HARVARD FRESHMEN AT SPRINGFIELD

THE Harvard Freshman Nine went to Spring-field on Saturday, July 12, and, on their arrival proceeded at once to their quarters, - the Lefebvre House. Having ascertained that Brown was to be their only opponent, it was agreed to play a series of games, to take the place, as well as possible, of the proposed tournament. The first game was to be played on Tuesday, the 15th; the second on Thursday, the 17th; and the third, if necessary, on Friday, the 18th of July.

The game of Tuesday was called at 4.30 P. M. with the Harvards at the bat. A. W. Perry, Harvard, '76, was chosen umpire, but was obliged to retire after the first inning, to prevent the strong wind permanently affecting his eyes, injured in a game a few weeks previous. Wm. Mason, Harvard, '76, was chosen to fill his place.

The game was closely contested up to the end of the seventh innings, the score then standing 10 to 10. On the eighth the Harvards got hold of their opponents' pitching, did some good batting, secured nine runs and six base hits, while the Browns in the same innings received a white-wash for the fifth time.

On the ninth innings the Browns had four runs and two men out; but as darkness was rapidly coming on, West was directed by the Captain to strike out, and save the innings, which he did, giving the game to the Magenta by a score of 21 to 14.
