Did you know?
As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about Oakland Coliseum that we found especially interesting.
Facts Unique to
This program is sponsored by ROSS and Comcast SportsNet California. The A’s design and distribute thousands of “Mathletics” workbooks which utilize simple formulas for calculating statistics of A’s players to students in hopes of promoting the importance of math among Bay Area youth. Students in the first through eighth grades who complete the workbooks correctly and submit the answer sheet to the A’s, will earn two ticket vouchers to an A’s game!

Our Reflections on the Game
Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team
Thoughts from James
Oakland stadium is old and tired. It was not in very good shape: lots of rust and cracks. The seats were not very comfortable and again worn out and old. O.co, or the Oakland Coliseum is 50 years old like mom! Good thing she looks better! The food was just baseball ball food — nothing exciting. We had a great game and made the best of it! Not very many people in attendance, so there were no lines for food, bathrooms, or shopping!James
Hopefully, this will be the lowest we go, because it’s hard to find something positive here about O.co. The seats are cracked, rusted, and held together by duct tape. The concrete is cracked and rusted and uneven. The bathrooms are old, the food is not good, and the stadium is just tired.Christie
