Entries for the scrub baseball series close tomorrow evening, and as yet but two nines have signified their intention of taking part. We can scarcely believe that after the success of last year's competition the coming series will be such a dead failure as this seems to forbode. Possibly there is some delay among teams intending to enter, or some misunderstanding as to the date when entries are closed. We sincerely hope that there is some such explanation for this seeming lack of interest. The scrub games were so generally appreciated last year, and proved such an excellent introduction to the class series, that their omission would be indeed unfortunate.
