This day in Baseball History

This day in Baseball History

1989 As the Giants and A's get ready to play Game 3 of the World Series, the Bay Area is hit by the massive 6.9-magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake, which will be responsible for 63 deaths. The Candlestick Park contest is quickly postponed by Commissioner Fay Vincent, and he wisely orders the evacuation of the ballpark.
