First Game of the Chicago Series
The first of the series of baseball
games between Michigan and Chicago
is to be pay I today at Regents' field.
This is also the first athletic contest with
Chicago since the resumption of athletic
relations. The Chicago team does not
appear to be quite as strong as it was
last year, but has made a creditable
showing so far. They lost to North-
western 6 to 7 and won later 12 to 2.
They were defeated on April 21 by Illi-
nois i to 1i and last Saturday i to 4.
But Chicago has less off days than most
teams because they always fight clear
through the game to the last minute
whether they are winning easily or are
hopelessly defeated. This gameness as-
sures a good contest.
It has not been given out who will
pitch for Chicago but if it is a warm day
Merrifield is most likely to occupy the
box as he is their most effective man
and a "warns weather pitcher." If the
weather is rough Rogers is likely to
pitch. The line-up will probably be as
follows: Merrifield, p., Place, c. f., Ken-
nedy, i b., Vernon 2 b., Ewing, r. f.,
VanPatten, s. s., Smith, 3 b., Woods, 1.
f., Harper, c. Beisel will occupy the box
The wire rope around the diamond
has been drawn closer to the players'
bench than it formerly was to enable the
spectators to see to the best advantage.
But in order to allow both teams free
room for play no one will be allowed in-
side the ropes. The management prom-
ses to enforce this rule to the letter.
The weather man promises clear
weather for today's game.
'Varsitq Meet Next Saturda.
The annual 'Varsity meet takes place
next Saturday at 3 p. in. The event is
being looked forward to not alone by
the track squad that has been in traiinbag
since February, but also by the numer-
ous admirers of this form of sport The
team this year, man for man, excels
anything that Michigan has ever pro-
duced in the past and good records may
be expected in all events.
-The records of the old men are all
swell-known. Of the new men, Leiblee,
France, Siegmund. Nufer and Dvorak
have done excellent work. France has
thrown the hammer 128 feet 6 inches and
gives promise to greatly increase the dis-
tance. Seigmund has put the shot over
41 feet, a distance which if duplicated
ought to win a good place at the inter-
collegiate. The cold weather has handi-
capped the pole vaulters but nevertheless
Dvorak did ti feet in practice the other
afternoon. The track being in poor con-
dition up to the beginning of this week
notice has been taken of the time
of the runners. The track is being
worked on daily and the heavy rain
ought to put it in excellent condition.
In short, everything tends towards an
excellent meet on next Saturday.
