The Yale Baseball Team.
The Yale baseball nine, judging from its playing in the last few games, will be the best fielding team that Yale has has for years. Sharpe, Cook, and Hirsh are all hitting strongly, but the team as a whole is weak in this respect. Captain Robertson and Coach Johnston have decided to allow each man to bat in his habitual style, as they think that last year's batting slump was due to the enforcement by the coaches of a uniform style of bating. The result of this new system seemed very satisfactory in the Brown series, Yale winning both games, by scores of 7 to 3 and 15 to 5. In the first game Washburn was hit safely 16 times for a total of 23 bases. Cook, who pitched for Yale, allowed eight hits and gave four bases on balls. Brown lost the second game principally on errors. In this game Yale's fielding was remarkably sharp. Yale has also defeated Lehigh, 11 to 0, and the Crescent Athletic Club, 14 to 4.
