Did anyone else see that the A's have posted the date and time for their Fan Appreciation Tailgate?
Its going to happen on Tuesday March 29th starting at 4pm. This just seems so odd that they had it in the middle of the week instead of a weekend like they have had it in all the past years I have gone to their Fanfest/Fan Appreciation Workout/Fan Appreciation Tailgates. Kinda a crappy day and time to have for people who love a decent drive from Oakland and have to work during the week. Thought I should just point this out since it seems pretty weird in terms of trying to rally their fanbase for the upcoming season. I haven't seen much publicity for this event either. I don't want to seem like a conspiracy theorist, but it does seem odd if they make their Fan Appreciation event less accessible to the fans and attendance is low doesn't that just fuel their fire that they need to move. I could just be crazy and that they were forced to have it since the Exhibition game against the Giants is on a Tuesday, but from the point of pandering to the fans I would have rather seen a Fanfest event on a weekend like most teams do. I mean I am sure they know Tuesday game are some of the worst attended since they are in the middle of the week.
