Virginia Earthquake Gives Baseball Announcers In Cleveland Something To Talk About

Earthquakes during a Major League Baseball game......if this sounds familiar, it absolutely should. The Loma Prieta Earthquake infamously occurred before Game 3 of the 1989 World Series. And now much less famous, the Earthquake that struck Virginia this afternoon and was felt from Raleigh to Cleveland to Canada, occurred during a Mariners-Indians baseball game in Cleveland. Here are four announce teams to take you through the events.

Seattle Mariners TV: Dave Sims and Mike Blowers

Seattle Mariners radio: Rick Rizzs and Ken Wilson

Cleveland Indians TV: Al Pawlowski and Rick Manning

Cleveland Indians radio: Tom Hamilton and Mike Hegan

Even during an earthquake, Tom Hamilton still manages to scream at the top of his lungs over a double with no men on base. Some things never change.

Unrelated to any of this, but fantasy football draft tonight.  Check out my picks if you want to see who will have a sub-par season this year!
