Swingin’ A’s Weekly Recap: March 25th-31st


What an interesting week, huh? The A’s opened up the 2012 season with a two-game series against the Seattle Mariners in Tokyo, Japan. They split the series, but the second game of the series gave fans a glimpse into the future with Yoenis Cespedes’s stellar performance. Overall, it was a very productive week for all of us here at Swingin’ A’s and we invite you to revisit some of our top stories from the past week as we prepare for the first week (and real Opening Day) of April 2012! Rejoice, A’s fans, baseball is here!
