Spring baseball practice will commence within two weeks when a call for the varsity candidates and all Freshman candidates to report for practice in the Cage will be issued on February 17. All other men retained on the University squad at the close of fall practice and the baseball men who were engaged in other sports in the fall, will be called out on March 1. Other candidates will have to obtain permission from Captain Wingate in order to engage in spring practice.
The battery men have been getting into condition during the past week by running every afternoon on the board track north of the Homenway Gymnasium.
The system of starting spring practice with a small squad of selected men proved very efficient last year, and gave the coach much better opportunity to give individual attention to the men than had been possible when they were called out indiscriminately.
As soon as the condition of the ground will permit, the fielding candidates for the University and Freshman teams will commence practice on Soldiers Field.
