The Williams College Baseball team scored an impressive victory over the visiting Princeton College team, then considered one of the best college teams in the country. The game was played on a warm afternoon under partly cloudly skies before a crowd of around five hundred people.  Behind at one point 13-2, Williams came back to win 30-17. (By John Osborne)
