Coliseum sewage problems are a national story, but the A’s hadn’t had a rainout at home since 1998 – until Tuesday, forcing Wednesday’s day-night double-header. A’s and Mariners players voted against a double-header this weekend, as is their right in the collective bargaining agreement.
The game between the A’s and Cleveland Indians on April 1 was postponed because of rain. It was the first rainout in Oakland since May 5, 1998.
The 19th rainout in Oakland history, including the postseason, covered the Coliseum with so much water so early that officials postponed the game about 90 minutes before the scheduled first pitch.
Selig will now commission a new committee to study tarp management in Oakland, expected duration of study is 5-7 years.
