The Oakland County Coliseum is the home of the Oakland Athletics and Raiders. The outdated and overused multi-purpose stadium is the fourth oldest in both the MLB and NFL.
During this past weekend’s series between the Mariners and Athletics raw sewage flooded both locker rooms, forcing the teams to share the Oakland Raiders facility on the floor above them.
The A’s have the best record in major league baseball over the course of the past 162 games, but they DON’T have plans for a new stadium, even though they and MLB have been working on the issue for years. Owner Lew Wolff and the rest of the Athletics upper management are well aware of the situation and are basically like, “hey, what are you gonna do?”
He also told the Mercury News he had no plans to talk to MLB commissioner Bud Selig about the obvious issues with the stadium.
But considering the exclusive footage we’ve acquired from the Athletics clubhouse of outfielder Yoenis Cespedes heading to the batting cage to take some cuts…
Wolff might want to be a LITTLE more proactive.
