New Ticket Employees: Buck, Eveland, Sweeney

Late last week A’s Ticket Services received a visit from three faces more familiar with the field than the phones. A’s outfielders Travis Buck and Ryan Sweeney and pitcher Dana Eveland dropped by to call A’s Season Ticket Holders.

The guys were great! Full of smiles and good nature they called out to ticket holders and thanked them for being fans. Dana Eveland was especially joyous upon renewing a Season Ticket plan. We’ll keep a seat warm for Eveland once he’s completed his 20 year career as an A’s starting pitcher.

A big “thank you” to the players for helping us with our efforts. Check out the photos below to see the guys in action.

Sky High Ziggy Chats Online

While this item doesn’t have much to do with tickets, we think it’s pretty cool that Brad Ziegler will chat online today from 3-3:30pm. Fans can register now and the online chat is free. Be sure to ask the side-arm reliver if he did any loop-d-loops during his recent ride with the Blue Angels. Zooooom!


Tower Of Power released an album in 1974 titled ‘Back to Oakland’, so we certainly understand if you spin this album over the next few days with the announcement of Jason Giambi’s return to the A’s in 2009. The Ticket Office was abuzz yesterday after the press conference with high-fives and phone calls. The excitement was not limited to just this office; the idea of the 2000 MVP and five time All-Star back in green and gold thrills many throughout the front office. Optimism is equally high. The recent acquisition of perennial All-Star Matt Holliday, coupled with the maturation of several younger players, will make the A’s an exciting and competitive team to contend for the 2009 AL West title. 


Season Ticket Holders can renew ticket plans online at oaklandathletics.com/2009. Individual game tickets go on sale January 24. Please reach out to Ticket Services if you have any questions.
