Close-up view of Red Ruffing's pitching grip focused on his extended right hand as he shows his method for gripping the baseball to throw a fastball. His outstretched hand at the center is in sharp focus with the lower part of Ruffing's face and his chest appearing slightly out of focus in the background. He wears a New York Yankees pinstriped, home uniform with an overlapping "NY" on the front of the jersey.
