The Yale Freshman Nine.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Notwithstanding the unusual enthusiasm manifested among the freshmen over their crew, work has not been totally neglected in regard to the nine. Earlier in the winter interest in the prospective nine was considerably below par, but latterly fellows have been waking up to the fact that their base-ball men have been somewhat negligent in beginning their work. After the question had been agitated, about thirty candidates presented themselves, and during the past few weeks they have been training with such determination and vigor as to make up for lost time. The names of the candidates are as follows: Cheney, Forsythe, Knox, Dunnell, Shaw, Wright, Cushing, W. McClintock, Hedges, R. Foster, Greer, Barnes, Childs, Young, Twombly, Sacket, Treadwell, Hall, St. John, N. E. Simms, Guy, Hopkins, Sears, Gage, Loomis, Herod and Gregory, '91, S. Besides these, N. McClintock, Poole, Root, Dalzell, and Dickerman, '91, S., are training with the University nine. The men are an unusually good set, and the competition for positions will he uncommonly close. F. C. Huntington, who was recently elected temporary captain, is one of the most promising candidates, and judging from his past record as second-baseman for three years on the Exter nine, he will do credit to his class. All the men are at present exercising in a body. They run a short distance every day, besides doing general gymnasium work, using chest-weights, dumb-bells and Indian clubs. Until very recently there was a disposition on the part of the upper-classmen to monopolize the cage, but it is expected arrangements will soon be made to secure it at certain hours for batting practice. In addition to this the men will practice throwing in Lincoln Rink. In comparing the respective merits of the Yale freshman candidates and Harvard candidates, one cannot help but be impressed with the weakness of our men. From present developments the freshmen here are decidedly inferior to the men at New Haven, and only by the hardest kind of work and systematic training can Harvard hope to wipe out the remembrance of the fiasco of last year's freshman team.
