The Earthquake

The Loma Prieta earthquake struck at October 17, 1989 at 5:04 p.m. Because of the coincidence of timing it was the first major earthquake in the United States ever to be broadcast by live television. Experts credit the timing of the World Series as a lucky break that prevented massive loss of life and a possible firestorm in the city. Among other fortuitous coincidences: This article does not cite its references or sources. ...

  • Due to the game traffic was light on freeways that collapsed in the earthquake. Initial expectations were that hundreds of people had died in the collapse of the Nimitz Freeway in Oakland; the final death toll from that event was 40.
  • A blimp that had been covering the game was used to coordinate emergency efforts.
  • Although the city's emergency water system failed due to ruptured water mains, fans helped connect hoses from a passing fireboat to fight fires with pumped salt water

The earthquake affected the World Series in various ways Interstate 880 is a regional bypass interstate highway in the Bay Area metropolitan area of Northern California. ... A municipal water system is a large system of reservoirs and large-scale piping which supplies fresh water, suitable for human consumption, to houses and other residences. ... The fireboat Guardian was a gift of survivors of the Loma Prieta earthquake to supplement San Franciscos fireboat Phoenix. ...

  • According to umpire Vic Voltaggio, he distinctively remembers seeing a white wall waving either during or immediately after the earthquake. Meanwhile, fellow umpire Al Clark was still in the locker room preparing to go to work. Apparently, Clark ran out to the field with just his underwear on when the earthquake hit.
  • The ten day delay in-between Games 2 and 3 was the longest delay in World Series history. The World Series was originally supposed to resume after a five day delay, but since the transmission links weren't properly connected yet, the wait went on for another five days.
  • ABC's actual opening for the October 17 telecast (leading up to Al Michaels informing the viewers of the earthquake) was used at the beginning of a 1990 television movie (documenting the Loma Prieta earthquake) called After The Shock.[1]
  • Fay Vincent had made the decision to postpone Game 3 without telling anybody first. As a result, the umpires filed a formal protest of Vincent's decision.
  • When the Athletics players were advised to return to Oakland after Game 3 was postponed, they had to travel through San Jose. While it would normally take around 30 minutes to travel from Oakland to San Francisco, it took the A's around two hours to get back to Oakland, due to the collapse of some roadway sections of the Bay Bridge.
  • According to Tim McCarver, when the earthquake hit, he and his broadcasting partners Al Michaels and Jim Palmer immediately grabbed what they perceived to be the armrests. In reality, the announcers were clutching on each others' thighs and they were left with bruises the next day. Years later, Al Michaels would boldly admit his strong belief that had the earthquake lasted much longer than 15 seconds, he would have been killed.
  • Shortly after the earthquake, José Canseco and his wife Esther were spotted filling up their car at a self-service gas station. José was still in his full Oakland Athletics road uniform while at the gas station. In Canseco's book 'Juiced', he says that someone wrote an article portraying him as forcing his wife to pump the gas, but that in reality, she told Jose to let her do it because if people saw him in his full uniform, it would cause a scene.
  • In the CBS Radio Network booth that was right next to the ABC Sports television booth, announcers Jack Buck, Johnny Bench, and John Rooney bolted as soon as the earthquake started. This was in sharp contrast to ABC's Al Michaels, Jim Palmer, and Tim McCarver, who all seemed to maintain their composure on camera once a back-up generator restored their power. Bench ran to a spot underneath a steel grate. Buck soon told Bench "If you would have moved that fast when you played, you wouldn't have hit into so many double plays."
  • Fay Vincent accused San Francisco mayor Art Agnos of being difficult to work with. Agnos wanted to wait a month before resuming the World Series. Vincent responded by telling Agnos a month-long delay wasn't acceptable and that the World Series might consider moving to another location.
  • Following the earthquake, ABC aired a rerun of The Wonder Years for about 15 minutes before returning. From that point, Ted Koppel anchored news coverage from Washington with Michaels acting as a de facto reporter. The Goodyear Blimp (which was already aloft for the game) provided video of structural damage and fires within the city.
  • Journalists in the New York area chided MLB for deciding to go on with the Series. However, events had been going on as scheduled, and other commentators claimed that the New York-area journalists merely disdained a World Series not played in New York or Boston (cf. the 1986 Series).

Trivia

  • Giants catcher Bill Bathe became the fifth National League player in World Series history to hit a home run in his very first at-bat. Bathe's teammate Matt Williams noticed Bathe wobbling when the earthquake started. Apparently, Bathe was looking in the stands to search for his family.
  • This was the first World Series that Fay Vincent presided over as commissioner. Vincent had been in office for a month after the death of A. Bartlett Giamatti.
