A Cincinnati player is up to bat and Anson (standing on the pitchers mound wearing a dark suit) is being photographed by photographers gathered in the infield. 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. Spectators sitting in the outfield bleachers and the buildings beyond the ballpark are visible in the background. Text on the image reads: (?) Anson Pitches 1st ball of the 1908 B. B.
