B6ston, May 2. Tho Nationals played
"their opening game in 13o6ton to-day, and tho
contest was witnessed by a largo and orithu-
elastic crowd of spectators. Tho Nationals
created tv favorable Impression, and oughth
'tho,game never was in doubt, yet thoy played
in a lively and spirited way that kept tho Bos
ttons on tho jump. Tho Bostons presented
their strongest team, Haddock and Murphy
occupying the points, whilo tho Nationals had
out Bakcly and Maglnne. Tho batting wbb
comparatively light, tho Bostons getting in
nine clear hits, while tho Nationals only got
nix off of Haddock, while Bakoly only sent
two men to bases on balls. Tho hits of tho
Bostons- were opportdno and generally
counted a run. Hines and Beccher made some
'very pretty catches in tho field, though tho
latter made ono costly error that gave Bos
tons a run. Tho fine playing of DoTfd caused
a sensation. Tho Boston lad was warmly ap
plauded ior his brilliant work. McQucry's
Hatfield's, and Bakley'a pitching and Beecher's
batting were tho attraction of tho contest,
'Mathow'6 umpiring was considerably off color.

Efforts to Strengthen the Teum.
Tho past week ha3 been demoralizing to tho
National Base Ball Club. With tho regularity
of clockwork thoy have daily emerged from
tho contests with the smaller score. Of
-course there Is lots of grumbling ampng tho
local patrons of the sport. Many attributed
the trouble to the act of tho directors bounc
Jng Manager Trott, holding that ho was not to
blame and 6hould have had a further chance.
His summary removal, it is also claimed, de
moralized the players, who went aboup tliolr
work In a half-hearted style, that plainly
showed itself in tbe Athletic-Baltimore series.
Ono thing is certain, the present manager
Is a hustler, and is going to have a team of
'ball players if it 1b possible to secure them.
Manager Snyder is a disciplinarian, and fully
'intends that harmony shall prevail in tho
.ranks and that every man must play good
''ball. Information has been received of the
release of Smalley and Keefo. Hart will bo
left in Boston, as Manager Snyder finds ho is
not made of the proper stuff. It is alsp prob
able that Jim Davis will get his papers at
tho samo time. In order to strengthen the
'team in the Infield Manager Snyder has ou
traged Mr. C. M. Smith to play short stop.
This player is better known as "Pop Smith."
Ho played second base for tho Boston League
team last year in 184 games, had 092 chances
and 57 errors aud an average of 912. In bat
ting he was 229. Ho will play at short and
Hatfield will be bbif ted over to third base. It
Is believed that this will make our infield
rather powerful. The Baltimore Sun of Sat
urday and the Evening Star of yesterday pub
lished a statement that McQuery was among
the number slated to go and that Hines was
to bo brought in to first base and Hart given
another trial in tho centre field. There can
hardly bo good ground for this stntemont.
With VIsner it is different, and it is prob
ablo ho will go. Pitcher Miller is recovering
from tho grip and will join tho team this week
and then tho batteries will bo something liko
this: Casey and Lobman, Miller and Maguiro,
Bakelv ami Snyder, with Mnce in as change
Improvements nt tho Park.
There will be somo changes noticeablo at tho
ball park on Wednesday next. Tho Infield
and sixteen feet boyond tho baso lines has
been sodded and rolled with a steam roller for1
sovcral days. It now presents a much moro
attractive appearance. A fence has been
placed iu tho oxtremo centro field near tho
lino of trees, in order to allow tho catchor a
chanco to gaugo his throwing to second base.
It was intended to take away a lot of tho trees
also, but this was found impracticable, and
will not be dono until tho club is away on its
Western trip. Tho members of tho presB
havo also boon looked after, and thoy will
hereafter find seats in tho privato stalls on
top of tho grand stand.
Wo havo gone tho length of tho toboggan.
Manager Snyder has been given absolute
Tall-end, our coveted position, is reached.
Dowd is a Brown University man, not a
Johnson, of the Baltimores, is making somo
Burns, tho now man of tho Nationals, seems
to bo hitting tho ball lively.
VIsner will make a good catcher with prac
tice. He is somewhat rusty.
Paul Hines still manages to get in good
work and shows tho young bloods now to play
Forty-two hits in on? game, with a total of
sixty-four, is the worst ever recorded. It is
Miko Kelly and his crew ot good ball
players make their first appearance on Mon
day, May 11.
Jones is receiving the abuse of the Phila
delphia cranks now. We think him as good
as any despite this.
Bobby Matthews does not seem to catch on
to umpiring as well as was expected. He
roasted the Nationals.
Tho way the Baltimores fell on to Kecfe In
last Tuesday's game was heartrending to the
few Washington spectators.
Hatfield, who was regarded as a great bat
ter, has certainly failed to keep up his record
as such. He is, though, a good waiter for
Thornton, who pitched for tho Amateur
Mount Vernons, of this city, and is a Washing
ton boy, is pitching great ball for the Phila
delphia League team.
Among the members of tho St. Louis team
who will play here this week is Hoy, tho deaf
and dumb player, who became bo famous
while a member of tho Washington League
Commencing ou Wednesday next the Na
tionals will play a game every day in this city
until tho 24th, when they make their first trip
West, opening in St. Louis on May 20. Thoy
will return hero on June 11 to meet the Bos
tons. Manager Snyder some time ago made up his
mind never to don a player's uniform again,
but the recent poor showing of tho team and
tho Inability to secure a good catcher caused
him to waver and he will probably play against
tho St. Louis. Charley in uniform would be a
drawing card here. Ho is practicing now
Manager Snyder has secured Sobeman, the
leading catcher of tho Pacific Slope, and ho
has started for this city. It is expected ho
will reach hero on Thursday next, and will bo
ablo to go In against tho St. Louis next Satur
day. Carsoy says ho is the equal of Buck
Ewing, and It is to bo hoped ho is, for tho
The Nationals will return homo tho present
week, and will on Wednesday play the St.
Louis team the first game of their Western
series. Tho visit of The St. Louis will no
doubt attract a crowd, as there is a great de
sire to see these sprightly boys of Vander Aho
play ball. Tho St. Louis will play here also
on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
AMATEUR BASE BAIjU.
Sprigman's hit against Winklemanin tho
Georgetown's C. A. C. game was tho longest
ever made on tho grounds.
Rebstock, of tho Potomac Athletics, had a
sore arm In- tho game against tho Y. M. C. A.;
henco ho was batted f reoly for two Innings.
Eddio Walsh Is ono of tho best amateur
players in tho District, and tho C. A. C. did
wrong in laying him off against tho George
towns. Harry King is trying for a place on tho C,
A. C. team. If things keep up thcio will bo a
team mado up exclusively of tho Kings, for
already there are three of them up to points.
On Tuesday Georgetown plays Columbian
College, and on Tuesday they go to Baltimore
to play Johns Hopkins.
The Ideals aud Columbia College teams
played an interesting game yesterday after
noon on tho Duponts' grounds, tho former
winning by a score of 19 to 0.
Tho Waverloy Base-Ball Club Association
has elected the following officers: Georgo W.
Schnoider, President; George F, Smith, Man
ager; Georeo Wlnklemen and Frank Reb
stock, Captains, and James A. Gordon, Secre

vllfo. Va., and Hopkins University and tho

The Blues" of tho C. A. C. defeated the
"Reds" of tho Bamo club yesterday 10 to 8
Batteries Fry and O'Loary for tho "Blues,"
Wells and Thornburgh for the "Reds."
Ellis, tho once famous short stop of tho
Mount Vernons, has joined tho Potomacs.
The Washington Light Infantry and Po
tomac Athletics will play their first game on
Tuesday next either at the National or Capi
tol Park. The Potomacs will appear in their
