The Ilobarl H erald 149 A t h l e t i c s . W . H. C l a r k , Editor. The indoor baseball league has begun and Hobart has already played two games. The first game the Antlers club defeated Hobart. This was in some measure a mere work out. The second game with Company B. 34th Regiment showed a great improvement. Below is an account of the game. Owing to the impossibility of securing the armory for practice pur­ poses, there will be no basket ball team here this year. They regret this very much as the manager had opportunities to bonk several college games here. Dwinell ’oS was elected captain of the football team for next year and Visscher ’07 was re-elected manager. The Hobart college boys displayed surprising strength and speed in last night’s contest with Company B., and Avon out 29 to 15 in a game that Avas pronounced to be the best yet played in the Indoor league schedule. ( Jpportune hitting in the opening innings and some rank errors by sev’eral Company B., players gave the collegians a lead that the soldiers found impossible to overcome. There. Avas a big croAvd at the contest. H obar t ’ s F ast P l a y . The play' last night Avas far more open and spectacular than that of the other game. Hobart’s infield gave a fine exhibition of fast work, HoAvell especially predominating in this respect. The out-field was also on the alert and once, in the first inning, Johnson, from deep left field, threAv Boyd out at the plate. Bremer pitched a steady game in all except the seventh inning. He fielded his position finely and several short hits were handled by him with such rapidity as to bring forth much applause. F. Johnson led at the bat for Hobart.
