Young M. F. Walker, the colored man who has been engaged to catcher for the Toledo Base Ball Club during the coming season, is said to be a wonder behind the bat. He has grit unsurpassed, stands up to the hottest pitching without trouble, and cannot be excelled at throwing rapidly and correctly to the bases. At base running he is said to be very expert. For six years he has been catching for college nines at Oberlin and Ann Arbor, and when with the latter team last year excited wonder wherever he played. There is already much talk, about him in Cleveland, and when he comes here with his club in April his work will be watched with much interest.
