This is a photograph of Toni Stone (Marcenia Lyle Alberga), an African-American female baseball player. In this photo Toni is with her Indianapolis Clown team mates. Seven players total are in the photo and Toni is the third from the left (after the player holding up the cup in the air). All of the players are in uniform and Toni is the only player holding a baseball. One of the players is leaning up on his bat. There is another person in the photo and he is the second person from the right and he is wearing a suit and a hat. The photo was taken during an actual baseball game. The fans in the stands can be seen in the background and the Clown's dugout is behind the players.
