1919 Battery Practice to Start
Battery candidates for the Freshman baseball team will report to Coach Ball in the Baseball Cage next Wednesday at 3 o'clock. Fielding candidates for the University nine will be called out in about a week, and for the 1919 team, shortly after. Coach Mitchell is now working regularly with the University battery men in preparation for the opening game of the season with the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Monday, April 10.
The contrast between Coach Mitchell's method this year and that used by Dr. Sexton last year lies in the simplicity of the former's method as compared with the emphasis on detail as shown by Dr. Sexton. Coach Mitchell makes no use of target work, of exercise with chest weights, or of the practice of having all men weigh themselves every evening, prominent features of Dr. Sexton's method last year.
