Generally when a college baseball team plays a game rumor has it that the little man behind the screen in the brown felt hat is a professional scout, but in Wal-tham yesterday afternoon it was different. Yesterday the man in the brown felt hat was John Ringling North and he was looking for someone to replace aging Emmett Kelly, the King of Clowns. It is inconceivable that he went home with his little black book empty.

It is difficult to say who the losing pitcher should be, since the Crimson scored in every inning except the first, nor was it behind after the top of the second. Technically, defeat would go to clean-up batting, utility fielding, Mike Baldovski, who started the game.
Baldovski retired to right field in the third inning, when centerfielder Dave Bouchard took the mound long enough to walk John Simourian and then return to the outfield to make room for an equally unsuccessful quartet of relief pitchers. In all they gave up nine walks, against three strikeouts, hit two batters, and made three wild pitches.
