Default A's Select Site for Proposed New Privately-Financed Ballpark

We've heard talk about this before. But now with the Raiders officially leaving town, maybe this will actually get done. This is far from a done deal, though. It sounds like, at best, it might not break ground until 2021 and open in 2023.

With all the work that's been done to improve the Trop, the A's probably deserve a new stadium more than anyone else in MLB right now. Good luck to them getting this site.

I hope they stay in Oakland. I remember their great teams from the World Series championship days in the 70s.

I even have an A's t-shirt in my collection and I wouldn't mind seeing a game in the Coliseum before they leave. The A's are a good guilty-pleasure team for which to root.

"Dolich said he’s hopeful the A’s can overcome whatever issues may lie ahead and emphasized that announcing a desired site is a far different game from developing it."

Funding?

Good luck in Cali...
