What is now named Oracle Park opened 19 years ago as the new ballpark for the San Francisco Giants.

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.
