MLB: Revealed How Luxurious The New Oakland Athletics Stadium Would Be, Though …

The city ​​of oakland published a 3,500-page environmental report related to the beachfront baseball stadium project planned by the Athletics. This is a mandatory step towards updating the project, and A’s President Dave Kaval, called it a “great achievement”. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf commented:

The publication of the final environmental impact report is an important milestone on our journey to build a new waterfront baseball park district. “

The next steps will be for the City Planning Commission to now review the report and vote on whether to recommend approval, and that vote will take place on January 19, 2022. The City Council will then decide whether or not to approve the project in February.

The project appears to be quite ambitious, and includes much more than a ballpark in its scope. It also includes “3,000 housing units, 1.5 million square feet of office space, 270,000 square feet of retail space, a performance venue for 3,500 people, up to 400 hotel rooms, and 8,900 parking spaces.”

Kaval says the inability to develop such a dynamic project is what prompted the Warriors (NBA) and Raiders (NFL) to leave Oakland, leaving the Athletics as the only major sports franchise in the city.

The ability of the city and the team to reach some sort of satisfactory agreement has wide implications for both the team and the league. The club has been exploring the possibility of following the Raiders as they move from Oakland to Las Vegas, even going as far as making an offer for land that could act as their future home.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, the LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
