Cal Ripken Jr. 1997 Upper Deck Collector’s Choice

I’m having a little trouble identifying exactly what is going on in image used on this card of Cal.

Based on the direction he is running, and that he has no glove on his hand, am I wrong in my opinion that Cal may be headed around third base and headed for home?  The shot has a backdrop that could possibly be the outfield behind either third base, shortstop, or second base.  And the direction he is headed appears to be down versus up or across.

The puzzling part is that we do not see a base line, and that little patch of grass next to his right foot.

I’m puzzled.

Hmmmm…

  1. I say rounding third. He must have been on base before this run because he removed his batting glove. This is somebodys RBI.

  2. I think TJ is right. This picture looks like it was taken from the 3rd base coach’s perspective looking towards SS & CF.
