Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Reviews
Not a bad place Sep 23, 2009
One of the few cookie cutter stadiums left in baseball, the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, commonly known as the Oakland Coliseum, is the home of the Oakland Athletics baseball team and Raiders football team. This review will be mainly for baseball.
This stadium has been home of the Athletics since they moved to Oakland in 1968. They are commonly known as the A’s. Not much to see around the stadium or in it, other than seeing the retired numbers and the World Series Championships (which includes ones from both Philly and Oakland) on the tarp that is on Mount Davis, the upper deck mockingly named after Raiders owner, Al Davis. The place does have some history.
The area around the stadium does not look so nice, being in a not-so-good area (putting it very mildly). Freeways and some railroad tracks, but no restaurants or bars around it, therefore not much to do before or after the game.
Not a bad place to watch a ballgame, and a much cheaper alternative to the Giants. If you are lucky, you can catch a game for $2.
