WELCOME OAKLAND BALLERS!

A MESSAGE FROM THE FANS

The Oakland 68's are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to community development in Oakland based on a shared love of baseball and professional sports. We are committed to keeping the Oakland A's rooted in Oakland for generations to come.

After nearly 2 decades of failed attempts to build a new stadium the city of Oakland and A's owner, John Fisher, were at the finish line of his proposed $12 billion dollar privately owned development for a ballpark (amongst several other structures) on 55 acres of waterfront property in Oakland's Howard Terminal. 

 

Despite securing more funds than Fisher asked for to aid in the development, in April of 2023 he announced his intention to relocate a team that has been part of the social fabric of our community since 1968 to Las Vegas for $380+ million in public funds to build a publicly owned ballpark on 9 acres on the Las Vegas strip. The Oakland 68's have teamed up with baseball fans across the country. With the help of our invaluable partners Last Dive Bar and Oaklandish, we have ensured that the united voice of our resilient and diverse fanbase reverberates across the league.

If Fisher wants to turn his back on Oakland, we have a single message for him:

 

SELL THE TEAM!

The Summer of Sell has been a collaborative effort amongst the whole fanbase. We have made our voices heard at ballparks across the country.

Two talented filmmakers and lifelong A's fans, Gabriel Cullen and Jared Isham, have partnered with the Oakland 68's and the A's fanbase to document our fight to keep our team in Oakland. While the ending of the story is yet to be written, they have followed our story and our efforts to keep the team in Oakland to compile into a documentary.

 

They are telling OUR story. If you have photos and/or videos you'd like to submit, or you'd like to donate to the production, or would like to learn more check out their website:
