Oakland Athletics Details
2017 marks the A’s 50th season in Oakland, and there is plenty to commemorate for one of Major League Baseball’s most storied franchises. Already having won five World Series titles before moving to Kansas City and, finally, the Bay in 1968, it didn’t take long for the Athletics to find success in their new digs of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. Led by larger-than-life personalities like Reggie Jackson and Rollie Fingers, the Swingin’ A’s, as they were known, rolled to three straight World Series titles from 1972 to 1974. The next decade brought more success, as Bash Brothers Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco brought home the 1989 championship on the strength of home runs galore. The organization literally changed the game in the early 2000’s, introducing a stats-centric Moneyball philosophy that revolutionized approaches to team building throughout the league.
While Oakland still operates on a Moneyball budget, there are plenty of big names in town drawing fans into games at the Coliseum. Left fielder Khris Davis finished third in the American League with 42 home runs in 2016, and he’s looking to become only the second player in franchise history to hit 40 dingers in back-to-back years. The first? Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx. There’s power in the infield, as well, as Marcus Semien had the second-most homers of all MLB shortstops in 2016 with 27 in only his second full major league season. Further lineup help arrived in the offseason via free agency in the form of center fielder Rajai Davis. The headliner on the mound is Sonny Gray, whose breaking pitches draw constant whiffs from opposing batters.
