Oakland Athletics Details
The Athletics were a founding member of the American League in 1901. The team originally played in Philadelphia. The A’s won five World Series titles in Philly before a change in ownership caused the team to move to Kansas City in 1956. After a little over a decade, the A’s moved to their current home in Oakland, California. The Oakland A’s won three consecutive World Series titles from 1972-1974 and added another in 1989. The Philadelphia and Oakland A’s have won nine world series titles — good for third-most among all MLB teams.
The A’s were the subject of the popular book Moneyball, which was later adapted into a film starring Brad Pitt. Billy Beane, the A’s general manager from 1998-2016, helped to start a movement that changed how baseball clubs evaluated talent. The A’s could not afford to spend money the way that the Yankees, Red Sox, and other large-market teams could, so they used different metrics when searching for players. Statistics commonly referred to today, like on-base percentage, Wins Above Replacement (WAR), and strikeout/walk ratio were legitimized by Beane and the Athletics. The A’s had the sixth-lowest payroll in the 2002 season but were able to win 103 games.
The A’s home ballpark is the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. The team has played at the Coliseum since they moved to Oakland in 1968, as the club’s attempts to build a new park have not been successful. The A’s are the only MLB team to still share a stadium with a football team: they currently share the Coliseum with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders. The A’s will become the Coliseum’s sole tenant after the Raiders move to Las Vegas in 2019 or 2020.
