Sunday in the (Ball)Park with Owgust

This undated photo shows Borchert Field in the middle of an afternoon game.

The rooftops across 7th Street remind us that Borchert was a truly neighborhood ballpark.

The photo has been heavily retouched, rendering sections of it almost Georges Seurat-like.

The retouching makes it hard to date the photograph, even obscuring the identity of the visiting team. But it also elevates what started out as a pretty standard game photo into something etherial, a work of art.
