Black and white photograph of San Francisco Giants Manager Frank Robinson coming out of the dugout to dispute a call during a baseball game. Robinson is in full uniform, wearing home whites (pants), a black jacket and a baseball cap with the "SF" logo. He is walking, pointing and appears to be shouting to someone ahead of him and slightly to the right. Though not in focus, the dugout and baseball stands can be seen in the background. Caption affixed to back reads, "Tribune photos by Howard Erker / Giants Manager Frank Robinson strides from dugout to argue called third strike on Billy North, but all Robby gets for protest is heave-ho from umpire Lee Weyer." Top and right margins have cropping registration marks in pencil and blue ink.
