She Faces Us to Play in the Rain
ana Jeers Us on the Field,-A
Mob at the Train.
It was a very solemn crowd that
stood around the DAILY office Satur-
day afternoon and watched the re-
turns come in. From the very first
inning things looked blue, and by
the end of the fourth all hopes of
victory had fled. As a rule excuses
are sought, but the score of 17 to 3
could not be accounted for, and yet
the defeat, taking in all the circum-
stances, was not so discreditable as
at first appears. The facts as ob-
tained from Mr. Charles Baird's let-
ter to the DAILY, and from Mr. Pe-
trie, a Michigan man and eye wit-
ness, are as follows:
The team arrived at Oberlin Sat-
urday morning, and found that the
game had been billed in the most
extravagant manner. Oberlin had
exerted all her efforts toward the
game and meant to win. There
were about 700 people at the field.
The day was of the very worst de-
scription on account of a cold sleet-
ing rain which had not cleared for
24 hours. Oberlin has what is
known as a "shin" diamond, and
the ground in places was so slippery
that one could hardly stand. Pools
of water stood all over the field.
Captain Shields protested against
playing on such a field, but was told
he could not have the two hundred
dollar guarantee unless he did. The
pitcher's box was strewn with saw-
dust, but was so slippery that Han-
lon could scarcely stand, and after
the first inning declined to pitch any
longer. He was induced to con
tinue by Captain Shields, who to!
him to toss the ball over the pie.
and play the game out. Michiiga
made no attempt at playing hard
ball for fear of becoming crippled
for the eastern trip, and the guaran-
tee was the sole reason that the nine
innings were played. The appar-
ent indifference of our men angered
the crowd, who hissed and yelled
and tried in every manner to "rat-
tle" our team. As our men left the
ground they were hooted at not only
by the spectators but by the Oberlin
players as well.
Our men had received an intima-
tion that the students would try to
steal our banners from the car and
were therefore prepared for them
