Mrs. E  is correct, kinda  wink ...Her photo shows the current configuration since 1996, the field runs north/south.  The baseball diamond is indeed centered while the A's are still playing.  Infield dirt smack in the middle...most kickers hate it; dirt is then covered/tarped.  

But originally, (from 1968 - 1995) the field would run east/west during baseball; then rotate to north/south, when the season ended.  As a season ticket holder, you actually had two different seating locations.  During pre-season and through baseball...I had bleacher type seating, on the 20 yard line.  (The Raiders actually gave those bleacher type cushions to the season ticket holders...Never used them but still have em').  Got my comfy seats, on the 35 yard line, once baseball was over...Sucked when the A's were always in the post season.


How it used to look during baseball season...You can faintly see the outline of the football field running from home plate to center field.  When baseball ended, the field would then be rotated and run from the left field line to the right field line.  



A lot of history, and fond memories; which is why I would hate to see them leave Oakland...But if they "have" to move..."Love Vegas, Baby"

See, you just can't leave this place for a minute.  I think Andy plans it that way to keep us all frequently checking in. wink
Well, you are the man to beat; I'll be happy to finish above .500 my first year...Oh, and stay out of the pink; at least here at RW... tongue

Hey, someone with much larger "Stones" than I once said..."Ain't To Proud To Beg"  Don't want to get on your bad side, at least not this early in my RW career.  Just keep adding to the list, Mrs.  rules  laughing
