This Day in A's History, May 10

The history of the A's franchise dates back to 1901, when they were based in Philadelphia. After a 13-year stint in Kansas City, they landed in Oakland in 1968, and have been here ever since (no matter how many times they have tried to leave.)

May 10, 1991: Oakland OF Jose Canseco is photographed leaving the West Side apartment of singer Madonna. He then goes 0 for 3 in Oakland's 5 - 3 loss to the Yankees.

May 10, 1973: Sparked by Bert (Campy) Campaneris (4-for-5), nine different A's had two hits or more in a 17-2 rout of the Rangers in Texas. Ray Fosse and Deron Johnson homered for Oakland. Somehow Horacio Pina earned a save. The A's totaled 23 hits in all.
