chicago cubs baseball field at west side grounds taken from directly above home plate

Image of the National League's Chicago Cubs baseball field at West Side Grounds, which was located between West Polk Street, South Wolcott Avenue (formerly Lincoln Street), West Taylor Street, and South Wood Street, in the Near West Side community area of Chicago, Illinois. This image was taken from directly above home plate. Players are visible on the field in their positions with the bases loaded. The pitcher is throwing a pitch to a batter standing at home plate. Spectators sitting in the outfield bleachers, a small building in the outfield with an American flag flying over it and buildings beyond the stadium are visible in the background. An advertisement along the outfield wall reads: The Tribune Always Makes A Hit With Its Sporting News.
