A large panoramic photograph of a baseball game taking place between Sanford and Orlando teams on August 13, 1909. The players can be seen standing on the infield and outfield, with a batter at home plate. The game is taking place in a small field, complete with wooden fencing and bleachers. Beyond the fencing can be seen private homes, telephone poles, and trees. Along the fence many spectators can be seen. Many are seated on top of the fence, looking over the fence, sitting on the the bleachers, or in their personal automobiles or horse-drawn carriages. It is believed that the team in the outfield is the Sanford team, and the team at bat is the Orlando team.
