This black-and-white image shows a 1931 baseball game that took place on a make-shift field during George Sternberg's paleontological excavation. The field is surrounded by over thirty old-time automobiles with ragtops. Behind the baseball field are a few tents along with many, many people standing to watch the game. During the game, the ball looks like it was hit toward left field, and there is a runner heading toward first base with dirt flying and coming out behind his feet. The area behind the outfield is covered in rough brush. In the background of the picture, there is a dense collection of trees full of leaves with dense bushes in front of the trees. There are wooden poles set up around the outside of the baseball diamond to be used as foul poles. There are three men walking behind the baseball field wearing tall, wide-brimmed hats, two toward right field, and one out in left field. Nine players are on defense wearing darker colored jerseys and one player on offense wearing a light-colored jersey.
