This is a photographic negative of an umpire pointing his finger as if a batter has been thrown out of the game. The umpire is pointing the finger on his right hand toward the dugout on the third base side. The batter (#5) meanwhile has his head down and walking away from home plate. The catcher and what seems to be the manager of the team are talking with the umpire. The background is half the grand stand and half the third base side stands.
