The Oakland Athletics dates back to 1901 when they were the Philadelphia Athletics. The franchise won five World Series titles before moving to Kansas City in 1955 and finally settling in the bay area in 1968. The A’s had immediate success in Oakland as they won three straight World Series titles in the early 1970s behind Hall of Fame players in Reggie Jackson, Jim “Catfish Hunter”, and Rollie Fingers. Even more impressive, Oakland advanced to the ALCS five straight times during their three consecutive World Series victories. The franchise once again became a force in baseball in the late 1980s into the early 1990s behind manager Tony La Russa and sluggers Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco along with speedster Ricky Henderson. The A’s went to three straight World Series, winning one in 1989 against the San Francisco Giants. Under General Manager Billy Beane and the “MoneyBall” approach, Oakland has advanced to the postseason eight times since the start of the 2000 season.
A return trip to the 2016 MLB playoffs would put the Athletics in position to win their 10th World Series title. To get to that level, the A’s would have to navigate through a very difficult AL Playoff Schedule. The 2016 Oakland Athletics playoff schedule is determined by the teams final seeding in the 2016 regular season. The final seeding will determine the A’s playoff opponent, as well as which team would hold home field advantage. 2016 Oakland Athletics playoff tickets are expected to be some of the highest demand tickets in the history of the franchise due to their recent success.
