This is a photographic negative of a Los Angeles Angel sliding back to first base. The runner is sliding on his left side with his right foot out infront of him. There are two umpires in this photo - one only a step behind the runner. An Oaks player is standing on first base with his glove high in the air. Two other Oaks are in the picture #5 and #42. Another umpire is also watching the play closely - he is standing on the first base line. The shot was taken from the first base side toward the infield and the third base side stands can be seen.
