This is a photographic negative of an Oakland Oak sliding into home plate. The L.A. Angels catcher (#16) is walking off home plate towards the infield and the umpire is standing behind the plate holding his protective gear. The left field stands are in the background. (D. Curry, 4/30/02) A PCL historian believes the man sliding into home is Artie Wilson.
