This is a photographic negative of a Sacramento Solons runner sliding back to first base. The player is sliding on his right side and is apparently out as the Oaks first baseman is moving away from the bag with the ball in glove. The first baseman's left foot is moving up and away from the bag as he is looking toward the outfield. The shot was taken from the first base side and toward the right field bleachers. A decent crowd can be seen in the stands.
