Ever wonder what it would be like to hit a home run in the World Series? What about playing a World Series in the middle of an earthquake? These are the experiences of current announcer for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos and former MLB player Greg Litton. Litton was the guest speaker at the “Our Love Affair with Baseball” luncheon at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art today. Litton was playing for the San Francisco Giants in the 1989 World Series when an earthquake hit the Bay Area right before game three. He tells News 25 the freeways were expected to collapse. He says the game drew such a crowd, it could have been the reason many lives were saved. “Now there were 60,000 people at the game. All of those people were off the street, but I think everyone else in town had gotten off the street as well because the game was about to start, so they had already gotten off. Whether they got off work early, snuck out or whatever, but the freeways during rush hour were empty.” Litton says even though the Giants lost that World Series, it felt like a dream being able to hit a homerun during a game. Litton spent six years in Major League Baseball. He says his faith was a huge help during the ups and downs of his career.   [READ MORE]
