Opening Night came and went, and though the game itself was a downer with a 6-2 loss, we had an amazing time at the pre-game tailgate that was co-sponsored by Let's Go Oakland, Oaklandish and, yes, Baseball Oakland.
It was a lot of fun hanging out with A's fans and friends, and eating BBQ food, drinking free Linden Street Brewery beer (thanks again, Adam!) and getting a "Stay" T-shirt or pennant or sticker or all three, which were generously donated by Oaklandish.
It was awesome seeing so many local baseball fans fired up to keep the A's in Oakland. Some of our favorite moments Friday night came when fans approached us and said how much the the A's mean to them. A lot of others asked what they could do to pitch in to keep the A's in Oakland.
The passion for the A's from everyone was really inspiring to see.
Thanks again for a great night, A's fans.
