Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum is the current home of the Oakland Athletics. A multi-sport facility, part of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum complex, the Oakland Coliseum consists of the stadium and neighboring Oracle Arena. The perfectly circular stadium has three decks and no roof.
The stadium underwent a long overdue $120 million renovation in 1995 that added 22,000 new seats, 90 luxury suites, two private clubs and two state-of-the-art scoreboards. The first crowd filled the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Sept. 8, 1966, when the AFL's Raiders played the Kansas City Chiefs. The Oakland Coliseum made its debut in baseball in 1968.
The Oakland Coliseum is one of the most pitcher-friendly parks in major league baseball. The huge open green of the Coliseum includes baseball's largest foul areas, which turn more foul balls into outs than any other MLB park. The Coliseum is symmetrical: 330 feet down the lines; 388 feet power alleys; and 400 feet to the centre field fence.
ESPN ranks Oakland Coliseum #20 offensively. In 2010, Oakland Coliseum surrendered a total of 7.75 runs per game for both teams (25th highest in MLB). Coors Field surrendered the most runs (10.59).
