There’s a story in the San Francisco Chronicle about how backers of keeping the A’s in Oakland — including the mayor and some business leaders — are touting a waterfront site in Oakland as a potential home for a new A’s ballpark. They talk it up big. There are pretty pictures of what a waterfront park may look like. A’s owner Lew Wolff says it’s not happening, however.
Some great context about why it may not be happening — and if it is happening, won’t be for many, many years — can be read abut over at Newballpark.org. They detail how regulatory matters such as the site’s designation for port usage make this way more difficult than simply putting together some pretty artist’s renderings and holding press conferences and rallies.
