The University baseball team will play Dartmouth on Soldiers Field this afternoon, immediately after the game between the Harvard and Yale freshman teams, which will be about 3.30 o'clock. The Harvard line-up will be the same as in the Williams game, with the exception that Hartford will pitch for the University team. Last year Dartmouth won the first game, with the exception that Hartford will pitch for the University team. Last year Dartmouth won the first game, with Hicks pitching against Glaze, by the score of 6 to 4, but was easily defeated in the second game, 9 to 1, when Glaze was relieved by Mitchell in the fifth inning.
This year the Dartmouth team started out with good prospects, having six members of last year's nine in college. The chief weakness is in the pitching staff. Dartmouth was defeated by Princeton, 6 to 5, and won from West Point on the Southern trip, 5 to 4. In the series with Bowdoin and Holy Cross Dartmouth won two games and lost two, defeating Holy Cross 4 to 1, and then losing by the score of 4 to 7. A victory was registered over Bowdoin, 12 to 0, after a defeat in the first game, 6 to 1. Dartmouth has also been defeated by Tufts, 1 to 0, and by Williams, 4 to 0.
The Dartmouth team arrived in Boston yesterday and practiced on the National League grounds in the afternoon.
The batting orders will be:
