In New York, Moore photographed Americans at their favourite sport. To everyone's surprise, including his own, Life had issued him with a press pass to the World Series final at Yankee stadium. 'Like spectators on the Hill at the Sydney Cricket Ground, baseball fans in the bleachers are a mixed crowd.' Nevertheless, he was surprised at how well dressed they were, in comparison to their Sydney counterparts.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
