We recently read the nice notes about Ticket Services in a thread on athleticsnation.com. Much appreciated. We’re definitely letting it go to our heads. No really, we’re always happy to help.
As you may have noticed the home schedule is a bit heavy in August and September. We hope you’re enjoying the increased offensive production since the All-Star Break. Off the field, we have a lot to do in Ticket Services these days as we continue strong in 2009 as well as look forward to 2010.
Keep the compliments coming! We look forward to assisting you.
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.
A month of preparation arrived with invoices hitting the post office this afternoon. Yes, renewal invoices were mailed out to all 2008 Season Ticket Holders packed full of 2009 ticket info goodness. You will find a ticket brochure, information regarding Early Bird renewal, a letter from A’s President Michael Crowley, Fielder’s Choice plan game selection form (for guests with said plan), and- of course- your 2009 renewal invoice. Prices did not increase from 2008 ticket costs. You can renew via mail by using the included return envelope, or you can phone us at (510) 568-5600. Online renewal is an option through your My A’s Tickets account. Haven’t used My A’s Tickets? It’s simple. Login using your Season Ticket account number. Your initial password is your account Zip Code. Visit the “To Do” page and renew online. You’re done in minutes. Online renewal reaps the added reward of complimentary MLB.com Gameday Audio. Beginning in March accounts will receive a registration email from MLB.com. Renew your account for the 2009 season by December 5, 2008 to qualify for Early Bird benefits. This season we introduce a Season Ticket Holder Sweepstakes offering trips to the All-Star Game in St. Louis and the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in Cooperstown, New York. Seriously, Cooperstown! We hear a certain stolen base king is on the ballot this year.

We’re excited for 2009 already. Reading various post-season publications the A’s farm system is raved about, a wealth of pitchers and some interesting hitters. Coupled with some of the young men in the bigs who gained experience in 2008, future seasons already generate a buzz. Reminds a few of us of the 1998 and 1999 seasons. How’d we do in the new millennium?
The Oakland Athletics, and all of Major League Baseball, announced the 2009 Season Schedule today. The Oakland Athletics, uniquely, announced 2009 Ticket Pricing as well. 2009 ticket prices will not increase from 2008 ticket prices.
