THE HARVARD UNIVERSITY BASEBALL TEAM, 1908.

later games there was a wonderful improvement in every respect; the team batted better and the fielding was above criticism. In the early games Hartford's control was not good, but in the Cornell game and in the first Yale game he returned to his last year's form. Hicks, the other first-string pitcher, did not make so brilliant a record as Hartford at his best, but he has done creditable work through the season.

The scores of the season were as fol

ATHLETICS.

Baseball.

The Baseball season can hardly be called successful, though the Yale series was won by a victory in the final game in New York. Out of the 24 games that were played the University team lost 12, won 11, and tied 1. Harvard was beaten twice by Princeton, failing to score in either game; the other defeats were by the University of Vermont, Fordham, Annapolis, University of Maine, Holy Cross, Williams, Amherst, Dartmouth, Brown, and Yale. A serious mid-season slump, lasting almost to the Yale series, was caused largely by difficulty in finding men for first and second bases and by injuries to two of the regular players, Capt. Leonard and Aronson. In the

Harvard outplayed Yale in the first game, played on Soldier's Field on June 18, and by taking advantage of Yale's misplays scored 5 runs, while Hartford held Yale to a single run and allowed only 7 scattered hits. The three Yale pitchers allowed only 6 hits, but by their wildness they practically gave the game to the Crimson. In the first inning Harvard scored twice through Leonard's being hit by the pitcher and two hits. Another run was added in the second inning by Simons, who reached first on an error, was sacrificed to second by Harding, and reached home on Leonard's hit. In the third inning

After the game in New York, E. P. Currier, '09, was unanimously elected captain of the team for next year. He has been regular catcher for the past two years, and caught in 1906 after Capt. Stephenson went to first base.

The 1911 team was exceptionally good and won the majority of its games. Of the series with the Yale Freshmen the first game, played in New Haven on May 23, resulted in a tie after 15 innings. In the return game in Cambridge on May 27 the Harvard Freshmen won, 4-2, by the excellent pitching of McKay and errors by Yale. A twelve-inning tie game was played with Andover, and several of the preparatory schools around Boston were defeated. The Sophomores
