Inhaltsangabe: The Oakland Athletics had won the pennant, the San Francisco Giants would win theirs the next day, and the long-awaited first-ever Bay Area World Series was at last a reality. This book, which began as an upbeat collection of photographs about a community's reaction to hosting both sides of the 1989 World Series, came to tell a much larger story.
Before it was all over, the Bay Area would be rocked by a major earthquake that resulted in death and widespread destruction not felt in Northern California since the great quake of 1906. Coming only minutes before Game 3 of the Series was about to begin at Candlestick Park, the 7.1 earthquake jolted Northern California, collapsing portions of interstate 880 in Oakland, knocking down the Bay Bridge roadway, causing a major fire and devastation in San Francisco's Marina District, and heavily damaging Santa Cruz and other South Bay communities.
The entire Bay Area was plunged into darkness and chaos for a time. Chaos gave way almost immediately to a sense of purpose as the community coped marvelously, even heroically, and soon rebounded fully. It would be a week and a a half before the World Series could finally resume, before people could divert their attention from the unthinkable events of the previous ten days.
This visual record of a remarkable three-week period in Northern California history, and the longest World Series ever, represents a unique publishing collaboration involving the Giants, the Athletics and Major League Baseball.
More than 250 stunning color photographs by 21 talented Bay Area photographers, serve as a potent and emotional reminder of this unusual time.
