A’s FanFest is Back!

After a three-year hiatus, A’s FanFest is back! Mark your calendars for January 29th from 10AM-2PM. During the 2012 season we’re honoring the 1972 World Series team and the 20-win streak team from 2002. It’s an honor to have players from both of those teams along with a cast of current A’s players and coaches at FanFest. A’s fans of all ages will get a chance to interact with their favorite A’s from past and present. The event will be indoors at the Oracle Arena, right next to the Coliseum. Here are some other features this year:

  • Free Autographs
  • Free Q&A Sessions
  • Free pictures with the four A’s World Series trophies
  • Memorabilia sale to benefit the A’s Community Fund
  • Free Parking

FanFest tickets are only $8 for adults and $5 for kids under 14. For more information or to purchase 2012 FanFest tickets, please click HERE. Current A’s Season Ticket Holders can request complimentary tickets by submitting their RSVP HERE. This also marks the first day of individual tickets going on sale at the A’s Box Office. Tickets will go on sale at 10AM. See you out here on January 29th!

A’s Front Office Angel Tree

Our Community Relations Department work tirelessly throughout the holiday season to promote holiday spirit and bring happiness to those in need. One way we’re helping this year is our “Angel Tree” in our reception office, benefiting a local single parent and children facility. Each staff member is invited to take an Angel from the tree (which includes the gift/wish of the parent/child). The entire front office is excited to come together, give back to a great cause and deliver a sleigh-sized bag of gifts to deserving families!

Our New Salesman: Jemile Weeks

Second baseman and rookie standout Jemile Weeks was in town and was kind enough to stop by the front office! It was great having him around; he brought fun and excitement to what would have been a normal Thursday in December. He even stopped by the sales office and made a few calls to some current and prospective Season Ticket Holders! Check out the video HERE.

Jemile even closed a sale! Maybe we should bring him on part-time. As if being the leadoff hitter and starting second baseman for the A’s wasn’t enough. Thanks Jemile!
