    Looks like there have been a bunch folks dieing to play baseball. Is that really the name of that town Caimi?

    That is the name. It consists of a beautiful stone church and school built in the 1850's. There is a large cemetery, part of which is pictured. There are a few nearby houses and fields of corn and beans. Oh, and a ballfield.

    Great shot that depicts 2 contrasts to me..

    - The tones of black & white
    - Life on the baseball diamond & death in the cemetary

    Great caption contest shot!

    A couple of quick possibilities:
    * A dying game
    * "The crowd fell silent..."

    Anyone else care to play?

    Yours inspired the idea.

    More in that vein:
    * Fans were dieing to see this game.
    * A pall fell over the crowd.
    * Ghost runner on first.
    * Most loyal fans around.

    I can't believe no one else wants to join in.
