Owners Approve Sale of Oakland A’s

Baseball´s owners have unanimously approved the sale of the Oakland Athletics to Los Angeles real estate developer Lewis Wolff.

That all but finalizes a deal that has been in the works for about a year. The owners spoke for five minutes via conference call to approve the sale, the next-to-last step necessary for Wolff and his group of investors to assume control of the team.

John Fisher, the billionaire son of Gap chairman and C-E-O Don Fisher, will be a majority investor , a sign the small market A´s might not be one of baseball´s low-budget teams for much longer. Oakland A´s Baseball can be heard all season on Am 1450 KVML beginning with the season opener against the Baltimore Orioles at 12:05 pm this Monday April 4th.
