The Day The Series Stopped

Before that instant, this had promised to become a memorable matchup: the first in 33 years involving groups in the exact same metropolitan region, a conflict featuring larger-than-life personalities and both colorful fan foundations. But following the 6.9 Loma Prieta earthquake wrapped, bringing destruction and death, the Bay Area pulled togetherbaseball took a backseat. Through archival footage, previously untold tales from officials, players, San Francisco and Oakland taxpayers affected by the earthquake, along with also a scientific look back at what occurred below the ground,"The Day The Series Stopped" will reevaluate that night 25 decades back. The record book shows that the A's swept the Giants, but that has turned into a footnote to the bigger narrative of the 1989 World Series. Manager's Take When I was 6 years old I moved into my first A's game in the Coliseum. Regardless of the team fighting, Rickey Henderson broke Lou Brock's major league single season record by stealing 130 foundations, a total that hasn't been approached since. Throughout the mid-80s I saw my group battle, but in 1988 the A's made it to the sequence. The next year that the A's were on a mission. I had been convinced that becoming Ricky Henderson straight back in the Yankees halfway during the year was a indication of things to come. The A's went on to dominate games 1 and 2 of this series and that I was getting ready for the celebration. On Tuesday, Oct. 17, 1989, the spectacle was changing into Candlestick Park for Game 3. Just prior to 5 p.m. PT, I went with my mother to the local market to pick up a couple of supplies ahead of the match. As my mother was writing a test (it was 1989), I recall feeling a jolt and then looking down the aisle, where the floor has been rolling like a wave in the sea. I could not believe my eyes. As it was over the Loma Prieta earthquake had measured 6.9 on the Richter scale and caused destruction and death in the Bay region. Both towns and their inhabitants suddenly had more important things to be worried about out of baseball. This movie is the story of the historical day as told through the eyes of those players, officials, fans and the folks from my hometown in the Bay region.
