Oakland A’s FanFest is coming! The big day is tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 28, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Jack London Square.

Two key facts:

  1. FanFest is NOT AT THE COLISEUM this year. It’s at Jack London Square. Make sure you go to the right place!
  2. FanFest is free this year. ZERO DOLLARS. The perks of a last-place team.

Here’s a map of the event/venue (click it to enlarge ... wait, phrasing):

The following players and coaches are confirmed:

  • John Axford, RHP
  • Mark Canha, 1B/OF
  • Jharel Cotton, RHP
  • Sean Doolittle, LHP
  • Ryan Dull, RHP
  • Chip Hale, Coach
  • Ryon Healy, 1B
  • Kendall Graveman, RHP
  • Sonny Gray, RHP
  • Liam Hendriks, RHP
  • Sean Manaea, LHP
  • Bruce Maxwell, C
  • Bob Melvin, Manager
  • Daniel Mengden, RHP
  • Trevor Plouffe, 3B
  • Adam Rosales, UTIL
  • Marcus Semien, SS
  • Jake Smolinski, OF
  • Andrew Triggs, RHP
  • Stephen Vogt, C
  • Curt Young, Coach

As I understand it, Rosales was still in San Diego on Wednesday but started sprinting north the moment he heard about his new contract and should arrive by Saturday morning (citation needed).

Finally, two images you absolutely must see. First, we have Sean Manaea playing with dogs:

Also, Bruce Maxwell’s hair leveled up over the offseason.

Are you going to be at FanFest on Saturday? Let’s make plans in the comments!
