This is a photographic negative of a batter swinging at a pitch during a night game. The batter's swing is mid-way as his bat is just over the plate. The catcher and the umpire are both still in their regular positions during the pitch. The first base stands can be seen since the shot was taken from the third base side by homeplate.
