This is a photographic negative of a Hollywood Stars batter attempting to bunt. The batter has the bat over the plate and has just made contact. The ball went straight up in the air and can be seen about six feet above homeplate. The catcher and the umpire are both still in their regular positions during the pitch. The third base stands are full and the visiting team's dugout can also be seen. The shot was taken from the first base side by homeplate.
