MANHATTAN, 5; C.C.N.Y., O
Opening Game of the Baseball Season at Jasper Oval.
The New York Times, April 1, 1900
The Manhattan College baseball team opened the season of 1900 yesterday on Jasper Oval with a victory over the boys from the College of the City of New York. The field was in excellent condition despite the snowfall of Friday night. A large crowd of adherents of both institutions greeted the rival teams, and warmed the chilly atmosphere by their enthusiastic responses to the star plays of the game. Owing to the fast team work of the Manhattan boys the College of the City of New York was unable to score. But three scratch hits were made off Ferri and Castro, and not a man of the City College team reached third base. It was Ferri’s first appearance with the Manhattans, and he displayed fine form. Castro relieved him in the seventh inning for the purpose of limbering up a little. Raidy’s phenomenal stop in the second inning was warmly appreciated by the spectators. Hamilton, the College of the City of New York’s pitcher, held the hard-hitting Manhattan boys down to six hits, thus repeating his good showing at Princeton last Wednesday.
