Oakland A's To Explore Relocation Out Of California

Major League Baseball has granted permission to the owners of the Oakland A's to explore moving the team out of Oakland.

Following years of failed stadium plans, the city council of Oakland has been focused on expansion plans for a new ballpark - even considering a $12 billion mixed-use development plan. According to ESPN, the goal had been to open a new complex in 2023, but now, even if approved by Oakland's City Council this summer, it would not be ready until 2027.

The likeliest possibility for the A's possible relocation would be Las Vegas, but commissioner Rob Manfred has in the past also cited Portland, Oregon; Vancouver, British Columbia; Nashville, Tennessee; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Montreal as potential expansion sites for franchises.
