CRIMSON SOFTBALLERS USE, ABUSE AND OTHERWISE DROWN OUT SO-CALLED STUDENT 'BROADCASTERS'

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Harvard Crimson softball team squeaked out a 23-2 victory over the WHRB Team Saturday at St. Peter's Field.

It was the 100th anniversary of the first battle between the student organizations. In 1897, The Crimson felled 'HRB, 23-2. The radio station was in its first year of operation after constructing a giant smoke-signal station on the top of Apley Court, which bothered all river residents.

In Saturday's game, the Crimeds were led by junior Alan Leo, who went four-for-five with two doubles, and the deft fielding and pitching of sophomore Rick Burnes.

The Radioheads took an interesting approach to the game, with senior Brad Miller calling the play-by-play from right field. However, his plan failed him when he forgot his own name, called himself "Henry Higdon" and dropped a pop-up.
