Jackie on the Dirt

Here is an interesting 1951 press photo showing Jackie Robinson laying prone on the infield dirt. Monte Irvin of the New York Giants looks over his right shoulder towards Jackie as he heads onto second base. I'm not sure if Robinson snagged the ball, or dove and missed. All I know is that my imagination is running wild. Maybe Irvin hit a liner to the gap for a double and Jackie is snagging an errant throw from right fielder Carl Furillo. Who knows? This great photo was found on eBay.
