The account of the game which the nine played on Saturday with the Tremonts is printed elsewhere. It is only necessary to say that the showing which the Harvard men made was on the whole gratifying to their supporters, the several hundred students who shivered on the benches of Jarvis. Of course it is impossible to make any decided criticism of the play after only one game. Still there are some things which attracted attention. The work of the regular battery seemed almost faultless and is an improvement over the performances of last year. Thus early are the good effects of the winter's cage work evident. The little fielding which was required of the men was almost perfect and if continued during the remainder of the season it will be impossible for many of our adversaries to reach first base on errors. The batting was the only place where much improvement is possible. Hard work in practice, the various matches during the month, and the advantage of a coach ought to bring this part of the play up to the required standard. Warmer weather and worthier opponents will doubtless attract more spectators than turned out on Saturday. Good support from the rest of the college helps the nine to play well. Large audiences and plenty of enthusiasm for good plays should be the rule throughout the season of 1884.
