About twenty-five men began regular training for the 'varsity nine yesterday afternoon. The work is very light, and will not occupy more than three-quarters of an hour each day. The candidates began yesterday with practice on ground balls, starting and sliding to bases in the Carey building. This was followed by a short run on North Avenue, and by the ordinary dumb-bell exercises at the Gymnasium. Among the men at work yesterday there were six or eight Ninety-four men. Trafford, Frothingham, Alward, Soule and Captain Dean represented the old players. The men will continue to meet at four o'clock each day.
The base ball management has secured the refusal of Winslow's Rink for practice, but Captain Dean could not say yesterday afternoon whether it would be used or not.
