The general team play and the batting were excellent. The only weak point in the play was the base running and it is earnestly hoped that the nine will never give another such exhibition in this respect. Last Saturday's game would have been won at the end of the ninth inning if it had not been for poor base running in the first inning. Aside from this the playing of the nine was as we have said before, altogether admirable, and deserving of the highest praise.
On of the most commendable features of the game was the umpiring of Upton, catcher of the Phillips Andover team. The position of umpire in such a game is a very difficult one for so young a man to fill, but the manner in which he discharged its duties showed that he was eminently qualified for it.
