This Bay-Bridge series interrupted by the Loma Prieta earthquake, October 17, 1989. I was on a highway, heading home. What a day.

IAE, despite the interruption, Oakland swept the series and the Giants wouldn't return to the fall classic until 2002, when, in Game 6, in the bottom of the 7th, 8 outs from winning the series, Dusty Baker [literally] took the ball from Russ Ortiz [and gave it to him as he walked off the mound!!], and the Angels came back to win that one. And the next one. And the Series. :(.

Price: $15.00
