This is a photographic negative of a San Diego Padres base runner crossing home plate. The catcher is leaning over attempting to field the throw. The runner has his right foot on the plate and is very safe. The umpire is standing behind the runner in the photo. A photographer and another player are in the background. The third base coach can also be seen. The shot was taken from the first base side by homeplate.
