A'S UNVEIL PLANS FOR COLISEUM; OFFICIALS DELAY NEW AGREEMENT
Published September 18, 1995
The A's unveiled their plans for the Coliseum Saturday, "including the possibility of calling it A's Field," according to Edvins Beitiks of the S.F. EXAMINER. Edward Alvarez, A's Exec VP for Business Ops under new owners Steve Schott and Ken Hoffman, says the team will retain control of baseball concessions and parking income as well as all signs in the Coliseum, but "will not participate in a stadium name sale." Alvarez said other possible names include "A's Ballpark and "A's Stadium" (S.F. EXAMINER, 9/17). In other Coliseum news, Oakland and Alameda County politicians have "delayed signing" a new operating agreement with the independent Coliseum board, "apparently because of historic conflicts inflamed by fallout over the return" of the Raiders. According to one Oakland City Council member, the delay "is to allow for talks on replacing the board with a management that answers to the city and county directly" (Rick DelVecchio, S.F. CHRONICLE, 9/16).
