April, June, or Whenever

You might have read a story in the Mercury News by Tracy Seipel about it being unlikely there would be a ballpark vote in March since we are still awaiting a decision by Major League Baseball on the territorial rights issue. Like the rest of San Jose, we here at Baseball San Jose are anxious for a decision and while we would like to know sooner rather than later, our efforts to build support has never hinged on an election in March. Whether we like it or not, Bud Selig has a process he wants to work through and there is very little we can do to push him along. While we might be frustrated we will forge ahead in making our case for why the A's in San Jose makes sense and continue building support for an election in April, June or whenever it is a decision is made. Who knows, maybe it will come next week when Major League Baseball meets in Florida for their Winter Meetings.

This Sunday, if you happen to be out at the San Jose Holiday Parade, stop by the Baseball San Jose booth and say hi. From 11:00 am - 12:00 pm Athletics pitchers Brett Anderson and Trevor Cahill will be by to sign autographs, so if our smiling faces aren't enough maybe theirs will be.

  1. I dont know if this is a sign of an utter failure of leadership at Major league Baseball or the workings of a meticulous man who wants every detail worked out. Either way, its been long enough. Move the A's to San Jose already, Mr Selig!
