The Oakland A’s ballplayers might not be suiting up for spring training yet, but the team’s top brass have kept busy.

They’re continuing their quest to find a new stadium, either in Oakland or here in Las Vegas. 

If they can’t agree on a deal with Oakland officials, there’s a handful of places they may land in Southern Nevada. 

And most of those places are on the Strip. 

But a key vote happened in Oakland recently, and momentum may be back in the Bay Area.
