Texas Rangers at Oakland Athletics

6 August 2009 No Comment

After relaxing with my parents and grandparents for a few days it was time for some weekday afternoon baseball. The Ultimate Sports Wife and I headed to Oakland to see the Athletics take on the Texas Rangers.

Parking at the Oakland Coliseum
We chose to pay the $17 to park in the official Oakland Coliseum parking lots. However, if you are trying to save a few dollars you can park across the freeway for free. Get off at the 66th Avenue exit and instead of heading towards the stadium drive in the opposite direction and park where the other cars have parked along the road running next to I-880.

Obtaining Tickets
I did not see any scalpers in the parking lot or on our way to the ticket office. The cheapest seat at the box office was $9 so rather than try to find an extra ticket; we bought the $9 seats. Of course, rather than sit where we had bought tickets, we sat behind home plate in the shade.

The Game
In a fast get-away-day game, the Rangers defeated the Athletics 6-4 to avoid a four-game sweep.
