This is a photographic negative of a base runner sliding into third base. The third baseman is attempting to make a play on him. The fielder's left foot is on the base and the glove is in the air just above the sliding runner. The umpire is moving quickly to get a good angle on the play to make the right call. The runner's left arm is high in the air. The photo was taken from the third base side.
