Emmett Ashford in Sequence photograph, 1968 September 29
A series of sepia toned photographs of Emmett Ashford umpiring. The picture in the upper left shows Ashford in his chest protector, removing his protective mask. In the other three images he is shown without his protective gear. The image caption on the right reads, "Los Angeles: Expressions of Emmett Ashford, American league umpire are recorded during the last game of the California Angels who played the Chicago White Sox 9/29. Ashford was at home plate calling the plays. Top left, he removes his face mask and top right he shades his eyes to watch a ball go over the fence. Lower left, Ashford is wondering why the Angel manager is again changing pitchers, lower right, Ashford sneers at the whole thing."
