The Oakland Athletics will relocate to Sacramento following the 2024 season, but the club’s long-term future is still in question.

Sacramento will act as the Athletics’ home through the 2027 MLB season, but a stay at Sutter Health Park could run through 2028 if the planned ballpark in Las Vegas still needs to be completed.

While many fans in Sacramento are thrilled to take in Major League Baseball for years to come, there are more possibilities outside of California and Las Vegas for the Athletics’ permanent home.

Brodie Brazil, NBC Sports California host, joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Thursday morning to explain why Salt Lake City is still a threat to lure a big-league ball club to Utah.

Plus: Brazil talks about the emotions that A’s fans are experiencing as they grieve the loss of Major League Baseball in Oakland.
