THH WASHINGTON'S PRACTICE ON
Tlicy Detent the Alerts in an Amusiiii;
Gmiio lit Capitol Park A Good Crowd
in Atfcmtmice General llaseball and
Spurting News of tlio "World.
The game yesterday at Capitol Park between
the Washlng'tons and the Alerts, a local team
of this city, was something like a practice
canter for the Washingtons, as the amateurs
proved to be rather timid and badly outclassed.
Thev tried three pitchers, and when they put
the ball over the rubber the Washington bats
men lined it out, but most of them were sent
to bases on balls, as the twirlers kept the poor
catcher .lumping all the time. Mace pitched a
good game and was ably backed up by Wrd,
who made his first appearance. O'Brien's play
at second and AVhistler's batting was the- fea
ture, while Madigan at second played well for
the Alerts. The rest of the sad story is told in
the following score:

Already there is much to show that this year's
Washington tenm is a better one in every re
spect than last year's. True, a couple of last
year'6 men were better than any on the new
club, but, tnkiug the collective merits of the
lattar, and judgiug by their batting, fielding,
and basc-riinwug, they overtop the League
team of last season considerably. The few
games they have played against the Rochesters,
Williams. Browns, Lehighs, and the Hamiltons
have demonstrated their ability as reliable ball
players; and, as Ted Sullivan remarked, the
entire lot, excepting Gleasou, are young, am
bitious, and anxious to attain a record among
the star players of the country. There is a snap
and vim about their playing that brings up
memories of the St. Louis and the Cleveland
clubs. Thanks to the eood work of Capt.
Gleasou, the men are getting in grand shape,
and learning all the "fly" ways that this excel
lent captain fell heir to while with the former
On Saturdavncxt, April 19, the regular cham
pionship season of the League, Association, and
the Atlantic Association commences, and from
that time out the daily papers will be overrun
with reports of the sport. The opening game
at Atlantic Park will be a brilliant one, and
everything will be done by the management to
mak'e it a cala occasion. A band of music will
be on baud, the players will parade through the
streets previous to the contest, and the grounds
and grand stand will be gorgeously aecorateu '
with bunting. Prominent officials, from the i
President down, will be invited to be present.
Hartford, one of the strongest teams in the ,
Atlantic Association, will be the opposing team. (
The first game of the season of the Columbia
Athletics takes place on Wednesday next on
the club's ground on Analostan Island. The
opposing team will bo from Lafayette College,
in which Pat Wells, of the Columbia Athletics,
is at present doing the catching. The Colum
bias will probably put out the following team:
Butterworth, p; Dickinson, c; Fryc, lb.; Har
ban, 2b.; Green, 3b.; Bolway, s.s.; King, l.f.;
Burke, cf., and Sprigmau or Keywortu, r.f.
The new uniforms of the Columbias arrived
vesterday. They are of the finest make, of
gray material, with blue stockings and an em
broidered "C," with a winged arrow on the

Georgetown Athletic Notos.
On Monday last the newgrouuds were opened
by the Leh'lgh University team against the
Georgetown boys. Although the home team
have had very little practice, still they put up a
maguificeut game. It only lasted for six inn
ings, as the Lehichs had to catch au early train
for Baltimore. The Georgetowus had the game
almost won until the last inning, when a few
bad errors, together with partial umpiring, al
lowed the Lehighs to tie the score. The at
tendance was about four hundred. When time
was called at the ending of the sixth inning the
score stood 0-0. The pitching of W. Gleason,
the catching of Racky, and the batting of Hoff
man were features.
On Wednesday a game with the Williams
Club resulted disastrously for the Georgetowns.
However, the game was entirely unexpected by
