Cleveland, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – The Lake County Captains are changing their name – for a night – to the Quake County Captains.

The team is having some lighthearted fun after a 4.0 magnitude earthquake struck Lake County Monday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed that the quake occurred just 2.5 miles north of Eastlake where the Single-A affiliate of the Indians play at Classic Park.

The quake, which reportedly did not cause significant damage, was reportedly felt in Lorain, Medina and Summit counties.   

The Captains host Lansing Monday night.
