FanFest set for Sunday
Can’t keep track of who’s coming and going in Oakland these days? Me either, sometimes. That’s why I’m looking forward to meeting a handful of the newbies and matching several names and faces on Sunday at FanFest. You can too, thanks to several events scheduled throughout the day. You can find more information here. Meanwhile, here’s a list of players and coaches expected to attend:
Coco Crisp, Dallas Braden, Jemile Weeks, Kurt Suzuki, Brett Anderson, Brandon McCarthy, Brandon Allen, Daric Barton, Jerry Blevins, Adrian Cardenas, Chris Carter, Joey Devine, Tommy Milone, Jermaine Mitchell, Jarrod Parker, Brad Peacock, Cliff Pennington, Anthony Recker, Josh Reddick, Adam Rosales, Tyson Ross, Scott Sizemore, Seth Smith, Eric Sogard, Michael Taylor, Neil Wagner, and manager Bob Melvin and his coaching staff.
And if you’re still in “Moneyball” mode, keep your eyes open for Scott Hatteberg and David Justice, who are also slated to make an appearance. FanFest will also host A’s legends Gene Tenace, Vida Blue and Joe Rudi.
In addition, a limited number of fans will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with A’s owner Lew Wolff to discuss a variety of topics in an intimate setting. Fans are invited to sign up for this exclusive meeting at the Information Booth on the Plaza located between the Coliseum and the Arena from 9-10:30 a.m.
