Proof print with close-up photograph of Baltimore Orioles Manager Frank Robinson arguing with third base umpire Drew Coble during a baseball game against the Kansas City Royals. Robinson (left) is wearing a dark jacket and a two-tone baseball cap. Coble (right) is wearing his umpire uniform with a dark collared jacket and a black hat. They are chest to chest, the bills of their caps are overlapping, they are staring into each other's eyes and both seem to be talking at once. Beneath the photo is text that reads, "(KXS1)KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 23--THREE WORDS AND YOUR OUT--Baltimore Orioles manager Frank Robinson and third base umpire Drew Coble go head to head during the second inning over a balk call. Robinson was thrown out of the game. The Kansas City Royals gave the Orioles their 17th straight loss 4-3. (AP LaserPhoto)c(sh71655str/orlin wagner) 1988." "Frank Robinson" is circled in blue ink in the above text and there are cropping registration marks in pencil and blue ink in the top and right margins of the photo.
