Fremont Back in the Hunt for the A’s

The City of Fremont suddenly has a viable counterpoint to Oakland’s plan for a waterfront ballpark for the A’s — the soon-to-be closed NUMMI auto plant. The city recently unveiled its proposal for a 36,000-seat stadium on the huge, 370-acre property. The land, in fact, is so massive that there’s plenty of space for the planned ballpark village proposed by A’s co-owner Lew Wolff. In addition, the site is within walking distance of the new Warm Springs BART station scheduled to open in 2014.
