A's owner Wolff releases statement on lease

|

"The Oakland A's and the City of Oakland had meetings this morning and we have come to an agreement on all outstanding points regarding a new 10-year lease at the Coliseum. The final step remaining is an approval by the Alameda County board, which will vote on the lease July 29. 

"We appreciate the cooperation and efforts of Oakland city officials in this process and are optimistic that our negotiations have led to a fair and mutually-beneficial relationship. Most of all, we are happy for our great fans who, pending the county's vote, will know that the Oakland Athletics will continue to play its games at O.co Coliseum.

"I also want to thank Scott Haggerty (Alameda County Board of Supervisors) for being so helpful during this process, as well as in other endeavors. We appreciate that he has always seen the big picture."
