1921 NINE WON INITIAL GAME

HARD HITTING AND MANY ERRORS FEATURED CONTEST WITH RINDGE.

The Freshman baseball nine began its season yesterday afternoon by winning from Rindge Technical School a very loosely-played game by a score of 17 to 9. In spite of the Freshmen's marked superiority at the bat the team's fielding was very erratic, and it was principally through this weakness that Rindge was able to make so high a total as it did.

Although 26 hits were made during the engagement, only one of these, a double by Quigley, went as an extra-base drive. F. L. A. Cady '21, who started in the box for the Freshmen, pitched well until the fifth inning, when a double and two singles in succession forced him to retire in favor of E. S. Hardell '21, who finished the remaining four innings. A double play, J. T. Baldwin '21 to T. J. Meehan '21, was the fielding feature of the afternoon.

The score by innings:   1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 Rindge,  0  0  2  0  5  0  2  0  0  --9 1921  0  2  2  4  3  0  6  0    --17
