This is a photographic negative of what looks like a sheep or lamb on the field of play. The animal is resting on the ground as two people in Oaks uniforms feed it with their hands. There are five people total around the animal not including the reporter to the far left of the shot. The person to the far right is holding what appears to be a lasso or lease. The person to the far right looks like a ball/bat boy for the Oaks. The reporter is wearing a suit and holding a microphone with his right hand. The stands in right field and the right field fence can be seen in the background.
