Oakland A’s Plan New Ballpark at Howard Terminal
The Golden State Warriors are headed to San Francisco. The Raiders are off to Las Vegas. But the Oakland Athletics have made it known that they are here to stay in the East Bay, and their slogan, Rooted In Oakland, is more than just a saying.
Wednesday morning the A’s announced their plans to build a new, waterfront ballpark at Howard Terminal near Jack London Square. The plans are set to fit 34,000 seats.
“I think the urban downtown location right on the waterfront is really a game-changer for the A’s and for Oakland,” said team president Dave Kaval. “It’s just a tremendous site. Having the connection to the water, the connection to Jack London Square, it’s a tremendous location for a ballpark.”
