Seldom has a franchise done so much with so little. The Oakland A’s are the working man’s team. From the Spartan setting of Alameda County Coliseum–not nestled in a park like setting but in a dingy grey industrial area–to MLB’s tightest salaries there is nothing luxurious here. What you will find though is a franchise ranked 3rd (behind only the Yankees and Cardinals) with 9 World Series Titles. Founded in 1901 in Philadelphia the team won 3 of 4 World Series from 1910-1913 and back to back Series in 1929-1930. After being call a “White Elephant” by NY Giants manager John McGraw the team adopted the image as their mascot. Today “Stomper” the elephant patrols the field to cheer the A’s on to victory. Perennial pennant contenders the A’s have the AL record for consecutive wins at 20 in 2002.
