Slap Hitter: Mayor Dellums goes to bat for Oakland baseball

Finally, the home team takes its turn at the plate. Oakland mayor Ron Dellums has mildly weighed in on keeping the A’s in Oakland. A letter is on its way to baseball commissioner Bud Selig. I’m not sure that a mildly stern missive is going to make much of a difference, but it is nice at least to hear the mayor’s office willing to make a pitch for a venue that seats a million plus every year.
