Oakland approves A's lease, but with modifications (w/video)

  • ERIC BRODER VAN DYKE (WWW.SHUTTERSTOCK.COM)

OAKLAND — The City Council has approved a 10-year lease extension that would keep the Oakland Athletics at the Coliseum — but with several modifications opposed by A's management.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1nA6FJ6) the amendments approved Wednesday do not impact the economics of the deal.

Among the changes were a clarification of the notice the team must give the city before it would leave, and the definition of practices relating to parking and other matters.

A's president Mike Crowley said the team was disappointed that the council refused to sign off on lease terms that had already been approved by the joint Oakland-Alameda County board that operates O.co Coliseum. He said the team would have to review the amended terms.

Council President Pat Kernighan said she hoped the A's would accept the minor changes sought by the council.
