The 'varsity candidatea played another scrub game on Saturday afternoon. Upton was out and caught for the first nine, while Trafford played first on the second nine, it being the first time he has been out.
The nines were made up as follows: On the first, Spalding, p; Upton, c.; Dickinson, 1b.; Frothingham, 2b.; Cook, 3b.; Whittemore, s.s.; Mason, l.f.; Paine, c.f.; and Corbett, r.f.; and the second nine, A. A. Highlands. p.; Clarke, c.; Trafford, 1b.; Lowell, 2b.; Gray, 3b.; Quigley, s.s.; Harding, l.f.; Howe, c.f.; and Linfield, r.f. The playing on the whole, was not quite so good as on Friday, the men being a little careless apparently. The base running was much better though, and the batting rather better. Upton was in fair condition, but his throwing to second was not good at all. Mason in left field, covered himself with glory, getting, a number of difficult long running catches. At centre, Paine covered a good deal of ground, although not quite sure in his judgment
Trafford was as steady as could be desired at first, and seemed to step right into his last year's playing without trouble. Whittemore ran bases very well, but seemed a little careless on ground balls. The game was played as on Friday, nine out on a side, and repeating the plays when necessary.
