The Ballpark

The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, situated in Oakland, California, is a multifunctional sports stadium primarily known as the home of the Oakland Athletics. This venerable stadium, with a seating capacity of around 56,000, stands out for its dual functionality, having hosted both baseball and football games. Its design is straightforward and utilitarian, reflecting the practical ethos of the 1960s architecture.

The Coliseum is notable for its expansive foul territory, one of the largest in professional baseball, which affects play strategy and provides a unique viewing experience. The stadium's field features a natural grass surface, well-suited for both sports. Inside, the Coliseum offers a range of traditional ballpark fare, adding to the classic game-day atmosphere. Despite its older facilities, the Coliseum holds a cherished place in the hearts of Oakland sports fans, representing a rich history of athletic endeavors in the Bay Area.
