This is a photographic negative of what looks to be a prize giveaway at the Oakland Oaks ball park. There are six people total on the field (3 Oaks and 3 people in suits. The three men to the far left are tilting a television. The man on the far left is wearing street clothes and the other two are in Oaks uniforms. The man in the middle is holding a microphone and wearing a suit. The man second from the right is also wearing an Oaks uniform and he too is holding a microphone and talking into his. The man to the far right is simply standing, wearing a suit, and holding a gift box of some sort. Behind them is a car, and behind that are the stands on the third base side.
