INGALLS ON MOUND AS VARSITY OPENS SCHEDULE AT HOME

Prouty Returns to Left Field, Second Place in Batting Order; Colwell at First, Tittmann in Right

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Local college baseball gets under way this afternoon when the Varsity nine meets Northeastern on Soldiers Field.

With seven veterans in the lineup Captain Maguire's Harvard team holds an edge in experience at least over Captain McNamara's aggregation of seven Sophomores and two Seniors.

Ingalls on Mound

Both teams are looking forward to profitable seasons. Both profess uncertainty in the same position, the box. Ed Ingalls, who showed ability on the Southern trip, will start on the mound for the Crimson, with Gus Rook, also a Sophomore working against him.

With the exception of Ingalls none of Mitchell's moundsmen have progressed very far.

At the plate the Crimson has a potentially strong punch. Ben Prouty returns to left field for his initial appearance of the season. Braman Gibbs is back in his old position, fifth on the batting order.

Colwell, Tittmann, Maguire

Following Gibbs comes Al Colwell, first baseman, and a leading hitter on his Freshman team last year, George Tittmann, in left field, and Captain Maguire, behind the plate.

Maguire, not a naturally strong hitter, works the opposing pitcher harder than almost any other man on the team. At Fordham his hit scored Harvard's first run. Batting eighth he rounds up what is on paper one of the most formidable swinging arrays the Crimson has mustered in recent years.

If the Crimson pitchers limit their opponents to a reasonably few runs, the batters will provide enough of the necessary punch.
