Fall practice for the University baseball team will begin on the University diamond on Soldiers Field this afternoon at 2.30 o'clock. Promptly at that time all candidates, including members of the Freshman class who wish to try for the 1917 team, are to report at the Locker Building dressed to play.
Coach Sexton and Captain Wingate, who will again be in charge of the squad, are anxious to have a large number of men report for practice this fall. The preliminary work will be very important for all men concerned. cuts will be made early in the season in the Varsity squad, and these cuts will stand through out the season next spring. Unless engaged in other sports or excused by Captain Wingate, all candidates, therefore, who desire to try for the nine, will be expected to report regularly for fall practice which will be held daily as long as the weather permits.
It is important that 1917 men, as well as University candidates, report for early practice so as to become thoroughly familiar with Coach Sexton's methods. The Freshman diamond has been recently improved and adds greatly to this year's facilities for playing.
