ON Fast Day our Nine made its first appearance on the field down at Lynn, where they played the Live Oaks. There was quite a large crowd gathered to see the "Oaks" polish off the Harvards; but, for Lynn, it was a very quiet and amiable assemblage. The game was one-sided and rather stupid, it being perfectly evident from the very first inning what the result would be. In the last half of the ninth inning the batting of our Nine was very good. The result of the game formed an auspicious opening of the season, being 11 to 3 in our favor, as follows: -

On the 14th we played the first game of the season with the Bostons. The Bostons put in Bond and Brown as pitcher and catcher, and J. White right field. The fielding was good on both sides. Leeds, Tyng, and Thayer distinguished themselves at the bat. The game would have resulted in a closer score if we had had the luck to hit a ball when these men were on the bases, but our base-hits always came in when they did the least good. The score was as follows: -

The second game of the series was played on the 17th, and was highly exciting and interesting. The Bostons put in the Whites to pitch and catch, with Manning in right field as change pitcher if needed. Up to the fourth inning neither side succeeded in scoring; in the fourth inning, however, the Bostons succeeded in getting in one run, leaving the game one to nothing in their favor. From thence up to the ninth inning there were no more runs made, but in the ninth Leeds and Dow each succeeded in getting in an earned run, making the game one to two in our favor. When the Bostons came in to take their last inning, their first two men, Schafer and W. White, went out in order, and every one thought that we had the game in our own hands. George Wright, however, got his base on called balls, and Leonard and J. White followed with safe hits. Three runs were scored, leaving the game four to two in favor of the Bostons. This game was lost, as was the preceding, by hard luck in not getting our base-hits in at the right time. There were several times during the game when a good base-hit would have won it. The score was as follows: -

The result of the hard work of the Nine in the Gymnasium during the winter, and their regular practice in the field since the weather has permitted it, is seen in the large number of base-hits made in all the games played so far, and in the small number of fielding errors. The outlook in base-ball is most encouraging, and it seems probable that the Nine will even improve on their splendid record of last year.
