It is unfortunate that the baseball cage is so damp that the candidates for the nine are all complaining of its unhealthful condition. The water from outside finds its way inside so readily that the ground and atmosphere are filled with moisture, and the men who work there do so at more or less risk of catching colds. There is no way effectually to do away with this dampness within a reasonable cost, and we suspect that the baseball players will be forced to stand it the rest of this season. An attempt has been made to carry on the practice of the batteries in some warmer place, but no fit place can be found. The baseball men lay great store by the practice they get during the winter, so that it is a matter of no small moment that they are obliged to work under these unfavorable conditions.
