A Tale of Two Ballparks

12:30 p.m. | Tuesday, November 19, 2019

What is now named Oracle Park opened 19 years ago as the new ballpark for the San Francisco Giants. At the time, the surrounding China Basin and South Beach neighborhoods were far different than the vibrant, transit-accessible district we see today. As the A’s plan a move to Oakland’s Howard Terminal, what can the team learn from the Giants’ experience across the bay? Join us to explore what successful neighborhood investment looks like for a sports team.
