The following image comes via Dugout Legends, a must-follow if you're on Twitter, and it's of this, our baseball from the unique perspective of the plate umpire. Please bear rules-enforcing witness ...

Aesthetically pleasing for the baseball enthusiast!

Crack Internet research reveals that this image is by John G. Zimmerman and dates back to 1959. As the palm trees and lack of outfield seating suggest, it's a spring training game, and it involves the White Sox, who would go on to win the pennant that season.
