A's vs Chicago White Sox
- Please accept my correction. The August 17th A's game is against the Chicago White Soxs not Cincinnati (Reds) :P. I went to my first baseball game with NorCal in 1986 and I guess I haven't learned much since then.

>We have not had a NorCal baseball game since 2003 and never had an A’s game, so we don’t know what kind of response to expect. The sooner you let us know if you are planning on coming and send your payment in, the better able we will be to balance the number of tickets needed and not end up paying for un-used tickets which happened last time. Also, we (mostly Elisabeth) worked hard to bring this game to you with a very short turn around time. A big Thanks to Ellen Davis-Zapata for her advice and support as well. We tried to get the Flag ceremony, color guard, singing the National Anthem, having the first pitch….the whole works, but our timeframe was too short. Depending on the response this year, we will know whether there is enough interest for an A’s game next year. We’ve been told that we can expect more next year if we plan ahead (and of course have a sizeable group!). So come support the A’s and support NorCal; or support NorCal and support the A’s. Go A’s! Go NorCal! Either way we hope you will join us.
