Now that the new ownership team of John Fischer and the Wolffs is coming to a head, most of the talk is about a new stadium. I've read articles that have discussed locations throughout the Oakland/Alameda area from downtown Oakland, the Colesium parking lot, and most recently somewhere along the Nimitz freeway between 66th and 98th streets, in a new, city council approved, redevelopment project.
With this in mind I have two questions for all of you:
- What things do you expect out of a new baseball-only stadium in Oakland? Parking, BART access, etc.
- What would you want the stadium to look like? Camden Yards and SBC Park have a very nice vintage looks, but I'm sure we don't want to make clones of those ballparks. If you were building a new stadium, what things would you incorporate?
