Additional Notes

Attending an Oakland Athletics MLB baseball game is a great way to enjoy summer in the San Francisco Bay area. The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, where the A's play ball, has a capacity of 48,000 fans. It has been in use since the Athletics moved to Oakland from Kansas City in 1968. Other than the Florida Marlins, the Athletics are the only MLB team to share their stadium with an NFL team. Oakland's name, the Athletics, refers to the Philadelphia Athletics baseball club from the 1800's. Although their logo is often a gothic script "A, " the team uses a white elephant named "Stomper" as their mascot during games. The white elephant originated after a New York Giants manager called the Athletics team a "white elephant."

The Oakland Athletics have won the World Series nine times, the last of which being in 1989. Although they haven't won a championship in over twenty years, the Athletics remain a great baseball club. They have advanced to the playoffs many times since their last World Series win. One of the A's biggest rivals are the San Francisco Giants, whom they play in the Bay Bridge Series each year. Unlike other rivals such as the Mets and Yankees, the Bay Bridge teams have a friendly rivalry, often with both teams selling merchandise at each others stadiums and one team wearing a historical jersey.

The Oakland A's are part of the smallest division in the major league, the American League West Division. The only division with just four teams, their rivals include the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Seattle Mariners, and the Texas Rangers. The Athletics team colors are green and gold, and they are the only team in the MLB to wear white cleats. Often, their beloved mascot Stomper can be seen on the shirt sleeves of the players. When attending an Athletics game, one can view the Athletics Hall of Fame and view the retired numbers. One of the most famous A's player to have his number retired is number nine, Reggie Jackson. The Oakland Athletics often offer great deals and fan opportunities such as free hot dog Thursdays where 10,000 fans get a free hot dog. If you decide to go to a game try to go early and enjoy some "tailgating" with the locals in the parking areas.
