LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – The A’s are returning to Las Vegas. This will be visit number two for the Oakland Athletics who are searching for a new ballpark. Major League Baseball has given the bay-area team permission to search for options outside Oakland. The news has been confirmed by A’s officials to KRON TV in California.

The visit by the A’s will take place June 20-21 and could involve sight surveys. A’s owner John Fisher and team president Dave Kaval will be among those making the trip to Las Vegas. Kaval made a trip to Las Vegas earlier this month and met with numerous local officials. No plans or site for a new ballpark in Las Vegas have been announced.

The Oakland City Council is set to meet this afternoon and possible funding for a new ballpark in the Waterfront District is on the agenda.
