Earthquake? The show must go on! The baseball game between San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers at the Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles went on as usual amid the earthquake on Friday. Even the tremors were caught on camera, that shook up, as the Dodgers hitter whacked the baseball. This was after a day a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked California.
Even the commentator got baffled and can be heard asking on air, “How are they continuing to play baseball?”

The official Twitter handle of Dodgers even shrugged off a follower’s comment, “It's just the camera man shaking the camera around’, with an emoji and even replied to a concerned fan, who asked, 'Are you guys cool?' that they were OK.
While this baseball game went on as usual, the NBA match between New Orleans Pelicans and New York Knicks was even interrupted.
Southern California was rocked by a 6.4-magnitude earthquake on Thursday morning, the US Geological Survey said, with authorities warning that the temblor, the largest in two decades, might not be the day's last.
US President Donald Trump said Thursday that the situation in Southern California after a strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake appeared to be under control amid reports of scattered damage.
"Been fully briefed on earthquake in Southern California. All seems to be very much under control!" Trump tweeted.
