A’s out of East Bay options, Wolff says
SAN FRANCISCO — Over breakfast in a penthouse at the Fairmont San Francisco hotel on Thursday, Oakland A’s co-owner Lew Wolff stuck a fork in the long-term future for the team in the East Bay, saying he still hopes to find a new home in Northern California, but that it will be up to baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, his old college fraternity brother.
Wolff, doing nothing to quell widely held speculation that he is angling for a stadium in San Jose, said he expected to know from Selig by season’s end what the future may hold for the team. For the A’s to move to San Jose, Selig would need to push Major League Baseball team owners to override the territorial rights that the San Francisco Giants have held in Santa Clara County for about 15 years.
