Angels in the Background for Kevin Seitzer

Hey, what's Angels catcher Ron Tingley doing on Kevin Seitzer's card? Throwing the ball around the infield after Seitzer struck out is what.

Seitzer is not happy with the umps called third strike I'm imagining.

It kinda looks like he's at Anaheim Stadium with the blue and orange railings but I'm not sure about the rectagular shapes on the railing. I'm not familiar with Milwaukee County Stadium, but I'm leaning towards Anaheim Stadium.

The back of the card shows Seitzer connecting and looking out towards the outfield like it's a hit or a deep drive. We also see more Angels: a coach maybe in the dugout, and the batboy sitting on a stool outside of it. And I know that the Angels dugout has always been on the third base side.

Retrosheet gives me this:
BREWERS 4TH: Listach doubled to center; Yount flied to center
[Listach to third]; Molitor struck out; Bichette singled to left
[Listach scored]; Bichette stole second; Seitzer was called out
on strikes
; 1 R, 2 H, 0 E, 1 LOB. Brewers 1, Angels 2.

So Tingly wasn't throwing the ball around, he was pointed at the pitcher for striking Seitzer out looking.

and this:
BREWERS 7TH: Molitor flied to left; Bichette struck out; Seitzer
lined to center
; 0 R, 0 H, 0 E, 0 LOB. Brewers 1, Angels 2.

So I think it's safe to guess that these photos were taken on the same day
on Wednesday, August 12, 1992 (D) at Anaheim Stadium.
