The only other World Series held in San Francisco's Candlestick Park was also struck by a natural disaster and ended up being the longest in history--13 days. Twenty-seven years ago, the damage and loss of life were more widespread geographically, as a killer storm battered the Pacific Coast from Northern California to British Columbia, leaving postponed baseball games as mere footnotes to the tragedy.
