Yesterday at three o'clock the freshman nine, with a few other freshmen, left Harvard Square for New Haven. A few changes have been made since the first game with Yale, and they ought to prove very beneficial. Dickinson has been put in to pitch, and if he can hold out nine innings will be by far the best man for the place. Mackie, who has taken Dickinson's place at first, has been unable to play with the nine until within the last few days. Notwithstanding his partial want of practice, he will play a strong game at first, and as he is a swift thrower, will be put in to pitch if Dickinson gives out. Paine, who will play left field is another new man, but not so well known as Mackie. He played a good game on his school nine, and ought to do creditable work. Altogether the nine is much stronger than when it played before, and if it plays as well as it has lately it ought to win.
The batting order will be as follows:
1. Frothingham, c. f. 2. Corbett, c. 3. Mackie, 1b, 4. Dickinson, p. 5. Clark, 3b. 6. Lowell, 2b, 7. Harding, r. f. 8. Paine, l. f. 9. Quigley, s. s. Subs., Linfield, H. Cabot.
