This is a photographic negative of a San Francisco Seals base runner sliding into home plate. The catcher is making the tag to his right. The runner is about to touch the plate but is clearly out since the catcher made the tag before he could get there. The umpire is standing above the catcher and watching the play. The tird base stands can be seen as well as the third base coach, another umpire, and the third baseman. The shot was taken from the first base side by homeplate.
