baseball squad following the strenu--
ous workouts Coach Lundgren has
been giving his men throughout the
past week.
A great improvement in both bat-
ting and fielding has been apparent.
The men are beginning to get their
eyes on the ball and are getting to
the pitchers regularly for everything
offered up. In handling the ground-
ers in the fleldiug cage, the men are
scooping up the drives laid down by
the mentor in great shape..
Early season dope continues to
point to a good team this year, one
that will give all the Conference nines
a big fight for the championship.
There is going to be some great scrap-
ping before the regular team will be
ckacksfop Position Popiilar
The backstop position seems to be
popular. Five men trying out for the
receiving job. Among these are Mor-
rison and Haidler, both on the Var-
sity squad last year, and Genebach
and Mraz who caught the freshmen
pitchers at the same time. The new
man is Rybak who has been doing
good work behind the bat.
The pitchers are Saunders and
Glenn of the last spring's varsity and
Gariepy of the same squad. From
the All-fresh Wescott and Ruzicka are
showing form. The other tossers sur-
viving the first cut are Goldsmith,
Crockett, Nye, Parsons, and Scheid-
ler, all of whom have been taking
their. turn at throwing them up in the
batting cage. As yet the slabmnen
have not let out with anything but
their fast ball, it being too early to
une any curves. As soon as the squad
gets outside the hurlers will begin
to let themselves out, and the stick-
men will ,-e more trouble finding
the ball.(
Infield Prospects Good
Trying out for the infield positions
are two last year's first team men,
Cooper, and Ohlmacher, and Adams,
captain of the freshman team of two
years ago, who was inelegible last
year. With these are Knode and Gil-
martin of the 1920 yearlings and a
number of others, all are showing
Thirteen men are candidates for the
places in the outfield, and though they
haven't had a chance to show what
they can do excepting with the stick,
Coach Lundgren should have no
trouble in picking three first class fly
chasers from among them.
