Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Oakland Athletics' 1979 season involved the A's finishing 7th in the American League West with a record of 54 wins and 108 losses. Team owner Charlie Finley nearly sold the team to buyers who would have moved them to New Orleans for 1979. Only 306,763 paying customers showed up to watch the A's in 1979, the team's worst attendance since leaving Philadelphia. Any deal to relocate fell through when the city of Oakland refused to release the A's from their lease. The city was in the midst of its battle with the Oakland Raiders over their move to Los Angeles and didn't want to lose both teams.show more
