At the ballpark I was once referred to as BullpenBlondie, when I went dark I thought ok ~ bullpenbrunette. This spring training however I was noticed by quite a few people (including Billy Beane and Bob Welch for starters!) for the funky, fun A's socks I was always wearing ~ I got some requests to start a twitter account that ended up being OakAsSocksGrl ~ I am currently working on a blog and a youtube channel tho neither are completely set up yet, I will post the links below! Hope you take a chance and follow me! I assure you I'm, nothing special but I know my A's baseball and have been told I can be funny ... so you'll just have to decide for yourself! :-)

A little about me: I work at a library and love it! I have 3 black kitties and a chihuahua and besides being a crazy A's fAnAtic, I lead a pretty simple life!

I've been a baseball fan since I was two or three, my grandma taught me a lot about it living in Texas, watching the Astros but I attended my first game here at the Coliseum when I was five and it was all over from there ... I have season tickets behind the bullpen, I love the passionate A's fans I've met there and the crew! I've worked for the A's in the past and was lucky enough to travel to several different ballparks. Personal A's highlights: Beating the giants in '89 (hate them with a passion!), Scutaro's walk off against Mariano Rivera, witnessing Dallas' perfect game, the 20 game win streak and really, last season! 2012 was the most A-mAzing season and probably the most fun I've ever had in my 27 years as a crAzy A's fAnAtic! Let's Go Oakland!

OakAsSocksGrl's Ceremonial First Pitch!

Ryan Cook caught my first pitch! I was obviously nervous about it but he was very nice! Some of the A's employees told me that people have fainted and puked before so I was already ahead of the game and I DIDNT do that! LOL! It was quite an honor! Follow me on Twitter or YouTube @OakAsSocksGrl

I was approached by the A's via Twitter, due to my use of different social media outlets to promote the A's, to throw out the first pitch at the game on Tues. April 16, 2013. It was nerve-wracking but definitely an honor.
