Lew Wolff expresses desire to build new, privately-funded stadium for the A's on/near current site
An excerpt from the letter:
Henry, as I have expressed to you, to Mr. Miley, and to the JPA, after the lease extension is signed I will immediately re-evaluate the possibility of a new, modern ballpark to be located on JPA property here in Oakland. In fact, we already have been looking, with cooperation from the City and County, into the bond costs and JPA operating costs to determine if we can present an offer that would vastly reduce or even eliminate the annual City/County subsidy and allow us to develop and control our own destiny-which I must do for the A’s to be a viable Major League Baseball organization.
This. Forget Fremont. Build it in Oakland.
