Dispute Over Oakland Coliseum Could Bring Oakland A's To Las Vegas
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred has told Oakland, California officials that the Oakland Athletics could move to Las Vegas if Oakland doesn’t drop its lawsuit over the sale of land at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
An Oakland city councilman told the Chronicle that the A’s have options elsewhere if the city doesn’t change its stance.
At issue is the city council’s decision to sue to block the county from selling its half-ownership of the Coliseum site to the A’s.
A judge issued a temporary restraining order last week putting any sale on hold.
