The University baseball field was used yesterday afternoon for the first time this year in a practice game between teams A and B of the first squad. This date is earlier by two weeks than last year.
The game, which lasted for four innings, resulted in a scoreless tie. The distinguishing feature was an errorless play of both teams. The pitching of Gehrke and Booth was particularly good. Practically no hits were allowed.
In the practice before the game, Coach Mahan laid particular emphasis on fielding and backing up the bases on throws from the outfield.
The teams lined up as follows:
Team A Amsden r.f., Bennett c.f., Hammond 2b., Todd l.f., Coady 1b., Keene s.s., Slayton 3b., Hoffman c., Booth p.
Team B Knowlton 2b., Zarakov s.s., Ellison 1b., Allen l.f., Doherty c.f., Rogers r.f., Roland 3b., Duchin c., Gehrke p.
