Marquette King, punter for the Oakland Raiders and one of the biggest and brightest personalities in all of professional sports, joined the Oakland A’s in Mesa, Arizona for some spring training fun.

King spent the day in the A’s dugout during a live spring training game, threw out the first pitch, and even took some batting practice in front of fans.

King even brought a little bit of the NFL to his Oakland neighbors before the game.

The Raiders may be leaving to go to Las Vegas, but it is safe to say that Marquette King is #RootedInOakland.

Listen to Sports 1140 KHTK’s The Drive with Carmichael Dave LIVE from Oakland A’s spring training on Thursday and Friday from 6 am to 9 am.

Date Starting Pitcher
Saturday, June 25 @ 1:10 pm A's Jared Koenig vs. Royals Brad Keller
