The Spring Trip of the Nine.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The nine left Cambridge Tuesday, April 2 for New York, where the first game arranged for the spring trip was to be played. The following men were taken: pitchers, McLeod, Hawley; catchers, Howland, Henshaw; 1st base, Willard; 2nd base Schroll, Wood; 3rd base, Brown, Barney; s. s., Dean; fielders, Linn, Mumford and Evans.

Only three games were played. The showing made by Harvard in these games was not entirely satisfactory, but despite this there is every reason to think that a good nine will be developed from the material now being worked. The batteries are much stronger than it was expected they would be. Hawley pitched in the first game at Philadelpia, and his work was much better than the base hit column of the Philadelphia's would indicate. The fielding in this game, especially that of the infield was by far the worst during the trip. McLeod pitched in the second game at Philadelphia, and against the Bostons last Monday. He did very well considering the very heavy batting team he had to face. Henshaw caught in the first Philadelphia game, but not in his usual good form. The work of Howland in the second Philadelphia game and at Boston is well spoken of by the papers.

The trip showed plainly that the work of the infield must improve greatly before the championship season opens. Willard, of course, plays his position at first for all it is worth, and Dean plays at short stop in a way that is at least encouraging; but the work of the candidates for second and third base was very weak in the three games played on the trip. All of the men however, are lively, wideawake fielders and display a willingness to work which gives encouragement that they will overcome this weakness before the season is far advanced.

The out field is strong, Linn in right field is always to be depended upon, both in the field and at the bat. Mumford and Evans both did remarkably good work on the trip.

The first game which was to have been played with the New York league team, at Oakland Park, Jersey City was postponed on account of the wet condition of the grounds.

The second game arranged was with the Philadelphia league club. In this game Harvard played in very poor form and with an evident want of team work. Had Hawley received the proper support, Philadelphia would have only scored three runs in this game. The redeeming feature of Harvard's work was the fielding of Mumford, who accepted seven difficult chances in centre field without an error. Linn's fielding and batting were also good. Harvard's only run was secured in the eighth inning on a clean base hit by Linn and errors of the league players. The score is as follows:
