As a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, I grew up rooting for the Oakland Athletics. They were my team; green and gold were my colors. Now, decades later, it's a dream to work for the organization I followed so closely as a kid. Come to any one of the team's home games and you'll see me on the big screen as the A's in-game host. Before the game and during inning breaks, I interview fans, host events and in general, act as the team's ambassador. Win or lose, it's always a great day at the O.co Coliseum. Let's go Oakland!

I love dogs and obviously I love baseball, so it’s the perfect combination for the fan who wants to catch a game with his/her best friend. Despite the gloomy July weather, this year’s event [...]
44 home games completed, 37 more to go. Believe it or not fans, but we are more than halfway through the season. How does time fly so quickly? Non-baseball fans lament the season’s length, stuffed with a game count that’s well into the triple digits. But for a true baseball fan — and I know [...]
As I wander the steps of the Coliseum during an A’s game, I am always looking for the diehard fans. A good way to spot them is by looking down to their shoes! When I was a partial season ticket holder several years ago, the man with seats next to me wore white, chunky-clunky sneakers [...]
