GAME WITH D. A. C. TODAY
THE U. OF M. MEETS THE CRACK
AMATEUR TEAM TODAY.
A Closely Contested Game In Pros-
pect-'Varsity Team Will be in
Good Shape-Yesterday's Prac-
tice at the Field.
Michigan's old rival, the Detroit Ath-
letic club, will be here this afternoon
for a contest, which will commence
promptly at 3:30 o'clock.
During the past five years.
the D. A. C. has had one
of the strongest amateur teams
in the West. Besides wissning
everything from the .various clubs. in
this section they have met, and fre-
quently defeated, the representative
amateur organizations of the East.
In 1892 they held the championship of
the United States, defeating the New
York Athletic club, which contested
for honors with them. Sincei that time
the elub has retained a first class team,
and has frequently defeated Michigan
both here and at Detroit. Among
their players are soiee men who have
been with the organization until the
bare mention of the team suggests
their familiar names. Ducharme, who
plays first base, is one of the best am-
ateurs in the state. Other good men
are the Guthard brothers, Guing, Kel-
sey and ltathburne. Not much is
known of the team's strength this sea-
son, but they have been organized for
three weeks, (luring which time active
practice has been indulged in.
Yesterday the 'varsity practice was
given up to batting and fielding. The
men were slightly wearied as a result
of Thursday's contest, but some spir-
ited work was accomplished notwith-
standing. Bloomingston was given a
trial at second base. He is slightly
erratic, but handles the sphere well,
and covers considerable territory.
Shields, ankle is still weak, but lie re-
sumed his position and will probably
experience no more trouble from it.
The line up of the D. A. C. has not
been obtained, but the 'varsity will be
made up as follows:
Condon, c.; Watkins, p.; McKenze,
1b.; Bloonsingston, 2b.; Deans, 3b.;
Itussell, ss.; Butler, 1f.; Sexton, cf.
