Candlestick Park, 1989
Earthquake postpones the World Series.
When I was growing up, my mother never let me visit San Francisco to see the Giants because "There would be an earthquake." Ridiculous, right? Except what happened when I finally attended my first game there as a baseball writer? San Francisco's worst earthquake since the Big One in 1906 struck just before Game 3, delaying the series 10 days. Back home, my mother said, "I warned him."
