Description
Ross assumes a vantage point as seen from a pitcher's perspective. This woodcut shows the catcher, about to receive the pitch he just called; the umpire, crouched over the catchers left shoulder for an inside view and, reminiscent of a Japanese ukiyo-e print, the hands of the batter appearing from the right margin. The action is about to begin.
