A letter from the managers of the Yale freshman nine wishes to arrange the dates of the games with our '87 nine so that the first game shall be played at New Haven. We advise '87's manager not to grant this great concession, for such it is. For the last three years, at least, according to the statement of a prominent baseball man, the first Harvard-Yale freshman game has been played at New Haven. It is a considerable advantage to play the first game on the home grounds, as the nine is then still untried in many ways and needs a hearty support. For this reason we do not think this advantage ought to be given to Yale every year. Although their men may desire to "take the fence" together they should not make the fact an excuse for taking an undue advantage of their adversaries. We strongly urge our freshman ball-players to get what is their just right, the first game this year in Cambridge.
