BASEBALL WORK OUTLINED

By Coach F. J. Sexton at Meeting of Candidates for Nine In Union.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The work for the coming season was outlined by Coach F. J. Sexton at a meeting of the candidates for the University baseball team, in the Assembly Room of the Union last evening, which was attended by about 70 men.

Every candidate must exercise regularly, from now until the end of the season, with chest-weights, Indian clubs, and dumb-bells. Men will be on hand in the Cage to see that no one shirks. These exercises are required to develop alertness and decision which are so necessary in a dependable baseball player. A man who is irregular in, or indifferent to attendance, will be dropped. Regular attendance will mean regular coaching and will bring the team to a uniform standard, so that the players will get together, and have that invaluable asset, team-play.

Three kinds of training, manual, moral, and mental, will be given the squad. The first will be supplied by the regular exercises prescribed, and by the coaching itself. For the second, a set of inviolable rules will be printed and given to every man taken to the training table; if anyone breaks one of these rules, he will be immediately dropped from the squad, regardless of how good a natural ball player he may be. The reason for such a dismissal will be published, so that no one can say that he has been treated unfairly. The third, mental training, lies with each candidate; he must have such a sense of duty to the College, the team, and Dr. Sexton, that he will keep off probation and so will give the coach a chance to work with all the baseball material that is available, and a chance to do his best.

All graduate coaches will be welcome, if they will speak to the head coach or the advisory committee before coming on the field.

B. Wendell, Jr., '02, spoke on the necessity of team-play and of thorough teaching to turn out a winning team, and Captain McLaughlin detailed the work for the coming season.
