This is a photographic negative of a baseball catcher watching a foul ball go into the stands. The catcher (#27) is staring into the stands on the first base side. An umpire who is holding his mask with his left hand is walking towards the catcher. In the stands some of the fans are attempting to catch the foul ball. The shot was taken from behind the catcher and into the stands.
