April T.?Baseball practice ai the Virginia .Military In? stitute ibis week has neon next to impossible, on account of tjle wci con? dition of the diamond, and Hie rains ?which have so far fallen almost con? tinually every day of tho week. This is, of course, a great handicap to the team, especially at the beginning Of the season, for none <>f the men are in their liest condition at this time. At most, tile cadets never have over on hour and a half lor practice each afternoon on account of military du? ties, which begin shortly after I ?o'clock, and when they are prevented by rain from getting even this small I amount of practice, the loss Is al? most irreparable. The team needs practice badly. No on.- who saw tho men work in tin-, tirst two games of j the season can deny this. But if fair! ?weather continues for several days there is no doubt that the endet? will imow marked Improvement in the near future, both in fielding and in hitting. To day, the first time since las; Sat? urday, the ground war. dry enough to permit practice, and Coach W hit,- had the squad out and at work before ;t o'clock. The spirit winch the men exhibited this afternoon deserves com? mendation. Ali of them retinae the set hack, which tint bad weather and the fonsecjuent loss of practicehave given 1 hem, and I hey ate trying to overcome this disadvantage as much as possible by hard, co.nsc,lontidus work. Batting, base running and working of the pitchers constituted the prac? tice this afternoon. ThroeKiuorton; [Ely ami Leech .all worked the box successively. They were required to pitch as steadily as if I hoy wer.- play? ing in a regul?r game, and the batters in order \vero sent to face them, the KCirul) team doing the fielding. Tills continued for an hour and the after? noon's work ended with a varsity In? field practice of fifteen minutes. On Saturday V. M. I. meets Fishburn Military Academy on the paru?e .ground here. Fctr.er's boytt always Jtnow the game well; and have never fniiod to put up a slroiig light against V. M. I. Their material is perhaps bet? tor than that of any other preparatory school in Virginia. The game has every prospect of heilig a hotly contested one, and the exhibition Of hall playing ?will doubtless he very good. jcni rning peacefully in the arms ot tin? afbrcniontloned "Truck.V Derrick found Boycc for a doiibie, and Iben the awfulness of it all hap? pened. Kmuse waited out two, and instead of taking the next one w...ctt tloatcd unsuspectingly over the middle, ho cut out the safety valve, turfned on full pressure, and somewhere on the other side of left held fence the l'?ys an- still looking; for the ball. In the meantime l-lauser and Perrich set the pace around tin- circuit tor the hefty individual, who was responsible for what happened. And before all this there were two out and an easy chance which kindly, blue-eyed, good-natured ??Truck" failed to take. And H was too first inning and there were four runs scored. .Not .Much Trouble Scoring, l-'rotii the awful hegin hing until the final chapter tie- fusillade continued, with a few intermittent lapses. The visitors remained quiet in the second, but in the third a double by I la user, a sacrifice by Derrick, which Kuan's sec? ond error turned into a life, and a hit by Krause, scored two more. The fourlh was another blank. How? ever, the fifth was again fruitful, an Halter's error put Derrick safely on the board, from which place he tallied when Krause hit for two sacks, being his third consecutive hit of the game in as many times on the Hiring 1 Tric.' An error by Baker, his second, put Me? llitus on second in the sixth, and ho scored while H?user and Derrick were being retired. There was nothing more, doing after this for the volunteers. 1'oIih Mintage to Tally. The Colts scored in the sixth and eighth. In the sixth frame Wallace, doubled, and scored when Griffith, who lshj.1 a centre fielder, hut a pitcher, threw wild to third base. In the eighth two bits and a couple of errors allow? ed two more to come over the pan. and that was all. Truthfully, it was about the poorest work the locals have done yet. ^ ney were up against a second second team, and ninny expected a better showing. MeCiiho was the banner boy of the af? ternoon for our side, getting away with three safe ones but of four times lip. Krause, for the visitors, was the Mar.
