Ranking The Top 50 Oakland Athletics
It’s been nearly 50 years since the Kansas City Athletics became the Oakland Athletics, after the team moved to the Bay Area in 1968. Since then, the team has seen many players come and go under the watchful eye of several managers, general managers, and even broadcasters.
We’ve dedicated plenty of words to the A’s franchise over the past few weeks, covering the organization’s top-10 pitchers and top-20 hitters, as well as their 30 worst players. But what about the most recent version of the Athletics’ franchise?
With that in mind, we took a look at the teams that have played in Oakland and selected the 50 best players during that time. Of course, a few extra names snuck their way into the list – after all, the guys on the field aren’t the only ones who can impact the franchise in a big way. Don’t be surprised to find off-field personnel in the rankings.
Ranking 50 players is a daunting task, so be sure to let us know which names you agree or disagree with in the comments below.
Without further ado, let’s get started with number 50:
