The Nine on Soldiers Field.

The 'Varsity baseball candidates were given their first out-door practice of the season yesterday afternoon on Soldiers Field. The time was spent in batting flies and grounders, although the ground was too soft for any accurate work. The practice will continue to be held out of doors as long as the favorable weather persists. It is probable that the new cage on Soldiers Field will be completed in the course of the next few days, so that it will be ready for use in case the squad be driven indoors unexpectedly.
