This is a photographic negative of a Hollywood Stars base runner sliding into home plate. The catcher is making the tag over the plate. The runner is there and the call is unknown since the play was very close - however based on the angle and the position of the catcher's glove the runner was probably out. The umpire is standing to the left of the play and ready to make the call. The third base stands and right field 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.
