Selig appoints committee to study A's
OAKLAND, CA -- Frustrated at the Oakland Athletics' inability to get a new ballpark, baseball commissioner Bud Selig has appointed a committee to analyze the team's hopes of obtaining a stadium in its current territory.
Selig met Saturday with Oakland's management at spring training in Phoenix. His announcement Monday follows the team's decision Feb. 24 to scrap plans for a ballpark in Fremont.
The team's lease at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum expires in 2010 and contains three one-year club options.
