The Oakland A’s are taking off the tarps for the rest of the season

This is a big deal. The upper deck tarps, which have been an eyesore for so long, are finally coming off. Half of the proceeds of the $15 tickets will benefit a local charity as well. CLICK HERE FOR THE VIDEO ANNOUNCEMENT.

As the A’s are working toward embracing their Oakland roots, this is another step for the fans. It already will be tough getting fans to the games and this will make the stadium look even more empty at times. But also this is the right step in terms of mending the relationship between the team and the city. The fans should love this and I think this is a good thing. Let’s see how it unfolds.
