Oakland Athletics Tickets
The Oakland Athletics have a storied history which has seen them compete and innovate. The A's have actually played in three different cities, moving to Oakland after stays in Philadelphia and Kansas City. The team has achieved the most success in Oakland, winning three titles in a row in the early 1970s, when the team was owned by the colorful Charlie Finley and led by Reggie Jackson. The team has always been known for big personalities and bigger bats. The "Bash Brothers" of Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire captured the hearts of the Bay Area when homers were flying out of the park. More recently, Jason Giambi led the A's to unexpected success early in the century. The Oakland Athletics games are in the Oakland Coliseum, which has a long history of hosting baseball. The park is next to a major highway and is accessible by the BART train system. Oakland plays in the American League West, where they are rivals with the Los Angeles Angels, Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers. Grab your Oakland Athletics baseball tickets at StuhHub today.
The Oakland Athletics' Moneyball
The A's have revolutionized baseball by figuring out how to win on a shoestring budget. Without the revenue stream of the larger market teams, the A's have had to become creative. Led by their general manager, Billy Beane, the A's pioneered the "Moneyball" strategy that gets them the most bang for their buck. With payrolls a fraction of the larger teams, the A's rebuilt and reloaded in the American League West. The A's are usually one of the more innovative teams in the league in how they approach player acquisition and development. The A's seemingly throw traditional scouting out the window in favor of a statistical heavy analysis. Thanks to Oakland's front office, the baseball as we know it has been permanently changed with statheads and PhD's populating major league organizations. At the same time, the A's are quick to swing a trade when they feel that they can get the maximum value for one of their players. It is an approach that has helped Oakland compete, playing in one of the smallest markets in baseball.
