The Athletics section of the 1894 Arbutus yearbook gives us some additional information about the team:

1) Others known to have been on the team include: first baseman C. Province, short stop Hagerty, left field C. Malott, third baseman H. W. McDowell, manager Uline, Murphy, and Olin.

2) Murphy and Olin are listed as "the battery" which means one was the pitcher and one was the catcher.

3) A paragraph reads, in part: "The final game of the year was the most memorable of I.U.'s battles. It was played with DePauw here on Decoration Day [today, 2015, known as Memorial Day]. Each team had defeated all of the other college teams in the Association...The game...was hard fought from beginning to end. The score was tied four times, and only in the last inning was made 13 to 11, in our favor."
