The University baseball squad began its spring practice in the Cage yesterday afternoon. The battery candidates have been working for several weeks, but this was the first chance the fielding candidates have had to limber up. Twenty-seven men reported to Captain Wingate and Coach Sexton for the fielding positions, and began work immediately.
The men were divided into two squads, one of which was composed chiefly of candidates from last year's Freshman team. After thirty minutes practicing in fielding grounders, a diamond was laid off and the men were given drill in fielding and throwing to the bases. Coach Sexton warned the players especially against using their arms too much and injuring them. Out-door work will begin the latter part of this month.
