When did the drums/"Let's Go Oakland" cheer begin?

These are questions for long-time fans: Was the "Let's go Oakland" chant as common during the Bash Bros era? I know it's a fairly standard chant used by many teams/cities or various sports,...

UPDATE: New Road Caps And New Green Alternate Uniforms

These are the new green alternate uniforms for the 2014 season. Personally, I was hoping they would use a large version of the elephant logo patch on the chest instead of the standard A’s logo. The...

Athletics Logo Evolution (Video)

I've created this video showing the evolution of the iconic A's logo since 1901. The old english A that first appeared in 1902 and is still used on the caps and alternate gold jerseys is the oldest...

80's power ballad features 1989 A's and Oakland Coliseum Here are the lyrics if you wanna sing along. I think this song is about Jesus, if that's your thing. If not, there's plenty else to make you smile, erect, cry, etc. I've been where you are before No one understands it more You fear every step you take So sure that your heart will break It's not how the story ends You'll be back on your feet again Baby, this time There ain't nothing gonna take this heart away No more goodbyes There ain't nothing gonna take my heart away The pain's still alive in you For what one man put you through You say that we're all the same But I'm called by no other name We all need a place to run Won't you let me be the one Don't keep the dream in you locked outside your door Just believe in this love And don't be afraid anymore I need you to please be strong I've waited for you too long This time There ain't nothing gonna take this heart away No more goodbyes There ain't nothing gonna take my heart away There ain't nothing gonna take this heart away.

A's Two As logos

Major League Baseball is chock-full of mysteries. Who was really the first black major leaguer? Was Shoeless Joe Jackson in on the fix of the 1919 World Series? Why do the Oakland Athletics have...
