According to the Oakland Tribune, the Oakland Coliseum as a big problem. Sewage is currently leaking into the baseball clubhouses.
Steve Vucinich, the A’s equipment manager, recalled it happening for the first time in 1975, when the stadium was 9 years old.
“They repaired it then, but it’s happened periodically since,” Vucinich said. “It didn’t happen when we had all those sellouts (last September and October) or in any Raider games, (so) I think something is probably broken.”
Wolff said the club was working with the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), the company that manages the facility for the Joint Powers Authority, to resolve the issue before the A’s return home June 25 after a six-game trip and that he did not foresee any hang-ups. He said there are no plans to play in another venue if the Coliseum isn’t ready.
This is just another reason why both the A’s and Raiders need a new stadium. Good luck with that.
