Hamilton, Duffy and Bannon, conceded

league. Neither of the three is over
five feet six and a half inches, and
every one of them can fly over the
ground; besides, all are hard hitters.
Nichols, Stlrretts, Dolan, Sullivan,
Mains and Yerrlck are the pitchers.
Mains 1b G feet 3 inches in bis stocking
feet and is not only a good pitcher, but
a tremendously hard hitter. For
catchers they have Bergen, a new man,
and in his work so far Manager Selee
says he has demonstrated that be is one
of the quickest and most accurate
throwers, also a splendid bask step and
a natural free hitter.
Besides Bergen they have Ryan,
Garjz9l and Tenney. The Bostons are
abiy managed by Frank O. Selee and aro
captained by "Mister" Duffy.
They havo lots of friends hore who

The college boys were in fine trim and
played an ezsellent game. Bach man
played his part well, but special men?

favorite of tbe evening. Allegheny's
