About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Caption correct?

Is it me or does this caption seem wrong? It seems like the caption should go with a posed picture of the manager & Bucky. How is the manager in this picture?

[Second baseman Harris was also the team manager. - Dave]

Safe at First

It's a pickoff play from the pitcher to the first baseman. The pitcher is on the bump, still in his follow-through.

The play is not close.

It may or may not have been in the dirt, but the first baseman just now caught the ball and has yet to tag the runner. He probably didn't even make the attempt.


Yup he's safe by a mile. To be out on a pick off attempt, as this looks to be, the first baseman has to TAG the runner out. it doesn't matter where the first baseman's feet are and the tag is a foot or more away from "ole Bucky"

I beg to differ

Speaking in baseball standards he is safe by a mile. The first baseman doesn't have either foot on the bag and the picture clearly shows "ole Bucky" coming in under the tag.

The ump would have to be blind to call him out! knowing the treatment us DC teams get from the officials he probably did call him out. The big blue bum...

Yer Out!

What a great action shot.

I wonder which way the call went? He's obviously out in Shorpy's not so instant replay but it looks close enough that the blind ump could have called it either way.

Awesome photograph.
