Oakland Athletics Group Transportation
A Time Honored Bay Area Tradition
The Oakland Athletics, also known as the Oakland A’s, were founded in Philly in 1901 and have been adored by fans ever since. They played in Kansas City from 1955 to 1967 before moving to Oakland for the 1968 season, and today they play at the O.co Coliseum where the beloved Raiders also take the field. Other historic Oakland Athletics’ venues have included Cashman Field, Municipal Stadium, and Shibe Park.
The A’s are owned by Lew Wolff and John J. Fisherm and are managed by Bob Melvin. The General Manager is Billy Beane, and the President of Baseball Operations is Michael Crowley.
This West Division American League team is represented by green, gold and white – and, of course, their mascot, Stomper The Elephant!
Not Just Any Baseball Team
The team was featured in the movie Moneyball, which focuses on how the team changed the analytics of the entire game of baseball. Unsurprisingly, these all-stars have won nine World Series, and this makes them second only to the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals. Additionally, they have won 15 American League Pennants and 16 West Division Titles.
Notable players have included, Reggie Jackson, Dennis Eckersley, Rickey Henderson, and Rollie Fingers. The A’s are also known for their Bash Brothers, Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire. Each year the team awards the Catfish Hunter Award to a team member with exemplarily conduct. Stephen Vogt and Coco Crisp are among the players who have received this honor.
Notable rivals include the San Francisco Giants, Kansas City Royals, and, of course, the A’s have an historical rivalry with Philadelphia Phillies.
