Oakland Athletics - A.L. West
In 2005 Athletics team ownership announced plans to build a new team stadium
to be called Cisco Field on a site just north of the Coliseum in Oakland.
The proposal called for a 35,000-seat mix ballpark, residential and retail complex.
The stadium's estimated cost of $350 million will be paid for mostly by the team.
Originally named for the The Athletic Club of Philadelphia (1901-54) before moving to Kansas City (1955-67) and finally to Oakland (1968-present). Today they are most prominently nicknamed "the A's" or The Athletics. The team mascot is the elephant which dates back to the 1905 world series. The A's have won 15 American League Pennants and 9 World Series Titles since their founding.
Famous team players have included Frank Baker (1908-14), Michey Cochrane (1925-33), Rollie Fingers (1968-76), Catfish Hunter (1965-74), Reggie Jackson (1967-87), Connie Mack (1901-50), Al Simmons (1924-44), and Dick Williams (1959-73).
