Several experimental changes have been made in the batting order of the Harvard team since the last game. Carr has been moved up from seventh place to first, and Lanigan has been moved down in the list. Babson will be in right field in place of Minot.
With the exception of three men, Winter, Brown, and Lewis, the Williams team is made up of the same men as last year, when it held Harvard to a score of 2 to 1 in a thirteen-inning game, in which Hicks and Templeton were the opposing pitchers. Williams has this year won a thirteen-inning game from Princeton by the score of 2 to 1, and a 1 to 0 game from Trinity. Templeton is one of the best of the college pitchers this year; in the Princeton game he struck out 13 men and allowed but six hits.
The batting orders: HARVARD. WILLIAMS. Carr, s.s. c.f., Hamilton McLaughlin, 1b. 2b., Winter Potter, 2b. 3b., Mills Aronson, c.f. r.f., Shons Lanigan, 3b. p., Templeton Babson, r.f. 1b., Lambie Kelly, l.f. s.s., Brown Young, c. c., Lewis Hicks, p. l.f., Bohnet
