LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Management from the Oakland Athletics have made numerous trips to Las Vegas to check out sites for a possible new ballpark. A report in Casino.org says that they A’s will wait until after the World Series to make a decision. The World Series begins in late October and could end as late as Nov. 3.
Athletics management has made numerous trips to Las Vegas looking for a site to build a new $1 billion ballpark. The Oakland City Council has not been able to come to terms with the Athletics on a new ballpark in the east bay.
Major League Baseball has given the A’s permission to look for a new city to relocate to. Portland, Memphis, and Charlotte have been mentioned as possibilities, but DraftKings has Las Vegas as a hypothetical +200 favorite (33% chance).
