This is a photographic negative of a San Francisco Seals base runner crossing home plate. The catcher is leaning over attempting to make the tag. The runner has his left foot on the plate but it is unclear if he is safe or out. The umpire is standing behind homeplate ready to make the call. In the background the stands behind the third base side are full. The shot was taken from the first base side by homeplate.
