Oakland Athletics is an American professional baseball team and is one among four teams in the West Division of the American League (AL). The franchise is presently based in Oakland, California. Athletics were established in 1901 and are one of the original American League franchises. Prior to Oakland the team had its home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Kansas City, Missouri. The franchise relocated to Kansas City from Philadelphia in 1954, and then to Oakland from Kansas City in 1968. The Athletics are commonly referred as the A’s and play their home games at McAfee Coliseum in Oakland, California. Alike other teams, the athletics have been a team of bright and gloom. Connie Mack served the team for 50years that is from 1901-1950 the first half centaury of its existence. Connie led the franchise to nine AL pennants and five World Series titles (1910, 1911, 1913, 1929, and 1930) during his astonishing diamond jubilee career. During these years the fine squad included players such as Hall of Famers Frank Baker, Mickey Cochrane, Eddie Collins, Jimmie Foxx, Lefty Grove, Napoleon Lajoie, and Al Simmons.
Though the team fashioned great dynasties, but they also ranked last 30 in 100 AL seasons. From 1929-1931, A's were victorious in three straight pennant and won the World title in first two seasons. This was achieved even with the existence of the Yankees great Ruth/Lou Gehrig team.
Mack sold his bright spots Grove, Foxx, Simmons and Cochrane by 1933 to maintain his budget. Dark period of the A’s rapidly pursued as the team ended 8 seasons no higher than 7th from 1935 to 1943.
Soon after the second move, the club accumulated one of the most dominant teams in major league history. Oakland won three successive World Series championships from 1972 to 1974 under the leadership of Sal Bando, Vida Blue, Bert Campaneris, Rollie Fingers, Catfish Hunter, Reggie Jackson, and Joe Rudi.
Tony LaRussa directed the team in late 1980’s to three consecutive world series appearances and won in 1989. Those teams featured sluggers José Canseco and Mark McGwire, base-stealer Rickey Henderson, and pitchers Dennis Eckersley and Dave Stewart. The 2002 season is remembered as one of the best season in the history of franchise as A’s won 103 games, on the potency of an American League record 20 uninterrupted wins in August/September.
