On this trip games will be played with several of the best professional teams in the country. No better practice could be found than playing games with men who have made a scientific study of baseball, and the benefit will undoubtedly be shown in the later work of the nine. Of course college men cannot hope to win from professionals, but we have no doubt the nine will make a good showing. We wish the nine a pleasant and successful trip, with fine weather, lots of practice and good luck.
The baseball nine leaves tonight on its first spring practice tour. This is an important innovation, marking the removal of one of the great obstacles which have stood in the way of Harvard's success in the past. It remains with the nine to demonstrate the folly of the objections which have been brought against playing with professionals-a task which they will without doubt easily perform.
