Possible Relocation for the Oakland Athletics

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.

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.
