1. More than 200 A’s fans packed Oakland City Hall last night to voice their support for a proposed new waterfront ballpark. The city is proposing to build a 39,000-seat stadium and mixed-use project near Jack London Square, along the Lake Merritt Channel, in a site known as Victory Court. Last night, the city Planning Commission began accepting public comment on what should be studied in an environmental impact report for the new ballpark. It’s a major step in Oakland’s quest to keep the A’s from moving to San Jose.
