Welcome to the 2019 baseball season! The Oakland A’s are ready to play their first game of spring training.
Or at least, they will if the weather cooperates. The forecast called for rain, but in the hours leading up to first pitch, the beat writers suggested the teams would try to play through it and the team has confirmed it. We’ll see if they get in all nine innings!
Update: They didn’t. The game has been called in the 2nd inning.
Also note: We will be doing FanPost Recap auditions again this year, and I’ll have to the schedule post up for that today or tomorrow.

See ya tomorrow! In a happy coincidence, the A’s and Mariners were already scheduled to play each other again Friday anyway.
We'll try this again tomorrow! https://t.co/hm1R6s7Yrm— Oakland Athletics ⚾️ (@Athletics) February 21, 2019
