Sunday Baseball in Oakland

There aren't many better ways to spend a Sunday in July than to sit in the stands and watch Barry Zito pitch eight innings for an Oakland Athletics win.

To increase revenues, the A's are planning to build a new baseball-only stadium in the next couple of years. While no one yet knows the location (or city) of the new stadium, I'll always love summer afternoons at the Oakland Coliseum. Even after the construction of the concrete monstrosity known as Mount Davis (the triple-decker stands named after Raiders owner Al Davis), the Coliseum is still a great place to watch a ball game. Great views from every seat, easy access to BART and the freeway, and best of all, fantastic summer weather, all make for great baseball experience.

Hopefully the new A's ballpark will be as stunning as the park used by our cross-bay rivals...
