Tomorrow: New ownership press conference

It looks like there will be a press conference with the new ownership group tomorrow. The MLB owners' conference call will probably happen early tomorrow morning. The vote itself is little more than a formality at this point. Jim Young returned to Oakland early to set it up.

"The stadium issue is going to be the major focus of this ownership group," Young said. "But that's no surprise there."

It would be interesting if the A's actually presented a ballpark proposal tomorrow. There's probably no better forum or time to do it than right before the season starts.

It's great to see a site with info about the A's ballpark situation. Keep up the good work! You should advertise more on the forums and maybe get to link to this blog because I don't think enough people know about your site.

Thanks. I intend to when more substantial news comes in - namely a proposal. The fans on the, AN, and OAFC have already cited the blog a few times, and a reference to it shows up immediately when you Google "new A's ballpark".
