BASE BALL.

THE Nine played their first match of the season with the Bostons on the Union Grounds last Saturday. On account of the condition of Jarvis, the Nine were unable to get any practice during the week, and even if they had, the Bostons grounds were in such a state that it would have benefited them little. The match during the first six innings was very interesting and closely contested. During these innings the Bostons fielded in their usual style and batted poorly, except in the first inning, when they scored four. With our Nine it was almost the reverse. They batted well and fielded poorly, as a general thing. In the latter part of the game the Bostons seemed to bat with much more success, and then the Harvards did the most disastrous fumbling and muffing. In the first half of the game there were many instances of sharp and accurate fielding done by both Nines, and the few spectators were often constrained to take their hands out of their pockets and applaud. Notwithstanding the numerous errors which our Nine were guilty of, the game showed plainly that practice alone is needed. The fact that much of the good playing was done by the new members, and that the "reliables" are responsible for the greater part of the muffing, is, to say the least, very encouraging. The batting of the Nine was certainly very good, and as this has hitherto been considered their weak point, there is cause for congratulation. It is evident that the members will play together much better than the Nine of '74, and will consequently raise their fielding average.
