Possible Relocation for the Oakland Athletics
The Oakland A’s on Tuesday evening are starting the possibility to relocating.
The A’s, who have played in Oakland since 1968, have prioritized building a waterfront stadium in downtown Oakland at the Howard Terminal site. But after years of failed stadium plans — and weeks after the organization requested that the city council vote on the $12 billion mixed-use development before its late-July summer recess — the long-anticipated specter of the A’s looking into relocation became a reality on Tuesday.Jeff Passan- ESPN
The Athletics have moved twice since the franchise was founded in Philadelphia, arriving in Kansas City for the 1955 season and in Oakland for the 1968 season.
