Pro­posed site for A’s ball­park falls through

Ottawa Citizen - - SPORTS -

The Oakland Ath­let­ics’ pro­posed site for a new ball­park near Laney Col­lege fell through with the board of the Per­alta Com­mu­nity Col­lege District. A’s pres­i­dent Dave Kaval and his team con­sid­ered this the top spot for build­ing a pri­vately fi­nanced park to open as soon as 2023. The A’s re­leased a state­ment Wed­nes­day: “We are shocked by Per­alta’s de­ci­sion to not move for­ward. All we wanted to do was en­ter into a con­ver­sa­tion about how to make this work for all of Oakland, Laney, and the Per­alta Com­mu­nity Col­lege District. We are dis­ap­pointed that we will not have that op­por­tu­nity.”
