Clip begins Pete Reiser of the Dodgers and Murry Dickson of the Cardinals shaking hands and talking before baseball game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn New York. Shot of Dodgers standing atop dugout step. Brief shot of Dodgers manager Leo Durocher. Majority of clip focuses on fans in the stands. Spectators in early 1940s-style clothing, both men and women, are seen in varying moods as the game progresses. Many close up views of fans and spectators, sometimes cheering, sometimes angry and booing, other times expectant and tense. Many men wearing suits, ties and hats, and smoking big cigars; female fans wearing dresses. (Note: the large crowd and downbeat mood of the spectators suggests this game could be from either September 11 or 12, 1942, both games which the Dodgers lost to the Cardinals at Ebetts Field as the teams battled for first place in the National League.)
