This week has been very exciting. On Tuesday August 3rd, Baseball San Jose leadership, staff and volunteers were at City Hall in force to support the San Jose City Council as they voted 11 - 0 to approve the Mayor's amendments to the City's Negotiating Principles for a Downtown Ballpark. Our supporters all wore Baseball San Jose stickers, including some local Cub Scouts. Prior to the meeting, supporters gathered outside City Hall for a game of Wiffle Ball and Mercury News columnist Sal Pizarro stopped by and wrote about it in his column.
Today we officially opened our first Baseball San Jose Headquarters in the historic Garden Theater in Willow Glen (1165 Lincoln Avenue, Suite 123, San Jose, CA 95125). Already people have been coming through the office asking questions and expressing their excitement about the prospect of the A's coming to San Jose. And yes, even Giants fans. In the days and weeks ahead, we will reach out across San Jose and the South Bay to ask people to support our efforts. So we encourage you to stop by and say hello and find out how you can get involved.
Next weekend, August 13-15, Baseball San Jose will be at the San Jose Jazz Festival, so if you are there, please stop by and say hi (more details to come). Or better yet, if you have some time to volunteer we could really use your help to staff our Baseball San Jose booth. Please contact us at 408.794.9753 or by email if you are interested.
Well, that's all for now, but please continue to keep updated on our progress by visiting the webpage at www.probaseballforsanjose.com and if you haven’t already joined our Facebook group.
See you soon.
Go San Jose A’s!
