Fox San Antonio - Maximum Sports
Baseball commissioner Bud Selig left open the possibility the Oakland A's could relocate outside their own territory, but don't look for San Antonio to jump on that merry-go-around again. Judge Nelson Wolff tells Max Sports his group spent two months "messing around" with the Florida Marlins back in 2006, and that he doesn't want to get in that game again, unless MLB announces that the A's are officially moving outside their current territory.
The Marlins considered moving 6 years ago, but it became apparent pretty quickly that franchise was just leveraging San Antonio to get a new stadium, which they eventually got and opened earlier this year. Wolff says San Antonio was the only other city at the time that was willing to try and lure the Marlins out of Miami.
The A's are trying to get a new stadium built in San Jose, California but the San Francisco Giants have the rights to that territory, and so far, are unwilling to let the A's build a new stadium there.
