Earthquake Felt During Padres-Blue Jays Game in San Diego
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Play stopped momentarily in the eighth inning of Monday night's Toronto Blue Jays-San Diego Padres game as Petco Park swayed during an earthquake.

David Eckstein had just grounded out in the bottom of the inning when the stadium began shaking. The next batter, Chase Headley, stayed out of the batter's box for a few seconds, then stepped in.

The public address announced asked that everyone remain calm. The crowd cheered.
