The Oakland Athletics last week asked to remain in the Oakland Coliseum for five more years, in a proposed agreement that would delay the target for their move to San Jose until 2018.
The A’s lease at the Coliseum expires after this season. The team has waited almost four years for Commissioner Bud Selig to approve or reject the proposed move to San Jose.
In a letter to the body that governs the Coliseum, A’s owner Lew Wolff agreed to keep the team in Oakland for at least five years “regardless of the outcome of our efforts to obtain a new facility in the City of San Jose.”
