#AceHistoryNews – Oct.17: On that day, the Bay Area was buzzing about baseball…..The Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants, both local teams, had reached the World Series #AceHistoryDesk reports

The third game of the series was scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park………..But, just prior to the game, a magnitude 6.9 quake rocked the San Francisco Bay region…….Though the stadium withstood the shaking, other parts of the Bay Area were not as fortunate…………Sixty-seven people were killed as a result of the 15-second quake, and more than 3,000 others were injured…….Additionally more than $5 billion in damages were caused by the tectonic activity. In the quake’s aftermath, San Francisco and other communities enacted strict regulations requiring unreinforced masonry buildings to be retrofitted. #SanFrancisco #Earthquake #1989 #WorldSeries #quake #naturaldisaster #AceHistoryNews
