Tampa Bay Rays v Oakland Athletics

Good morning, Athletics Nation!

The Oakland A’s will be on the radio again this summer.

After flirting with the idea of leaving terrestrial radio entirely in 2020, the A’s changed course in July and signed with 960 AM, a member of the Bloomberg Radio Network. They’ll stick with the same station for another year, the team announced last week, with all 162 regular season games broadcast on the airwaves in 2021.

Bay Area fans who prefer listening online will still be able to do so for free at A’s Cast on iHeartRadio. You don’t even have to wait until Opening Day to use A’s Cast, as the rest of this spring’s Cactus League games are being broadcast there.

Oakland will return their top-notch radio duo for a 16th season, Ken Korach and Vince Cotroneo. The duo will occasionally be joined by Ray Fosse, as usual. Korach enters his 26th season in the booth for the green and gold.

As for TV broadcasts, you can also expect to see all regular season A’s games on the tube between NBC Sports California and MLB Network, says team president Dave Kaval.

Of course, nothing beats going to the actual ballpark, which fans will be allowed to do again this summer after staying home last year. If you bought FlexTix vouchers, then you can begin redeeming them today (March 18). Otherwise, single-game tickets go on sale Tuesday (March 23), but if you sign up for the A’s Insiders newsletter then you can pre-order a day early on Monday.

Yeah but these don’t even come close to the all-time weird injury list, which includes Nolan Ryan getting bitten by a coyote, Steve Sparks dislocating a shoulder trying to tear a phone book in half, Joel Zumaya pulling a muscle playing Guitar Hero, and Marty Cordova falling asleep in a tanning bed, among others (much less John Smoltz allegedly ironing the shirt he was wearing)
