Elevated view of an unidentified baseball player, of the National League's Chicago Cubs, jogging to first base from home plate on the field at West Side Grounds in Chicago, Illinois. Another unidentified Cubs player is jogging to home plate from third base, baseball players from an opposing team are standing in position on the field, and a catcher and an umpire are standing at home plate. A billboard advertisement for the Chicago Tribune newspaper is partially visible along the outfield wall in the background on the right side of the image, and buildings are visible beyond the ballpark confines in the background. West Side Grounds 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.
