Oakland Athletics Baseball Tickets

Home to some of the best athletes to ever play the game, the Oakland Athletics, or As, is a storied franchise that made its way from East Coast beginnings and found itself a new home on the opposite side of the country in the late 1960s. Clad in white, gold and green, this American League West division ball club not only produced storied hitters and pitchers over the century, but also devised a system all of its own to compete with AL teams boasting more money and multi-million dollar players. Go see these East Bay champions by purchasing your Oakland Athletics tickets today!

Early years
The Oakland As actually formed in Philadelphia in 1901 as the Philadelphia Athletics, one of the original eight American League teams in Major League Baseball. Calling the city home for 54 years, the team’s roster saw appearances from Baseball Hall of Fame greats such as Ty Cobb, Chief Bender and Connie Mack, the As’ general manager for 50 years, who led the team to nine AL pennants and five World Series title wins. 

There’s also a rich and scrappy tradition behind the white elephant mascot the team has used since 1902. Once the manager of the New York Giants insulted the rival As by dubbing them a “white elephant;” Mack took to the name and had white elephant patches emblazoned on the uniforms. 

Making moves
After being purchased by businessman Arnold Johnson, the team moved to Kansas City in 1954 and finally found its current home in Oakland in 1968 at O.co Coliseum. It was on this diamond that Catfish Hunter pitched a perfect game against the Minnesota Twins in 1968 and “Mr. October” himself, Reggie Jackson, regularly knocked them out of the park as a new dynasty of As players clinched three consecutive World Series titles from 1972-1974.

’Moneyball’
While most of the attention usually goes to the players, the As also have stars managing the team, including Billy Beane, the subject of the book, “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game” and a subsequent movie where Brad Pitt played Beane. The book and movie examined the team’s 2002 season where Beane, the general manager, saw his team rack up 20 wins in a row and finish first in their division without having the big coffers or household-name players that the New York Yankees boasted. Beane and his ball club showed just how inventive they could be on and off the diamond.
