OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland Athletics announced today that it will distribute 10,000 La Potencia T-shirts, sponsored by NetSuite, at Saturday's 1:05 p.m. game against Kansas City as originally planned. La Potencia means "The Power" in Spanish and recognizes Yoenis Cespedes for his contributions to back-to-back American League West titles. This morning the A's traded Cespedes to Boston in exchange for outfielder Jonny Gomes and three-time All-Star pitcher Jon Lester, who is scheduled to start on Saturday.
In addition, the A's today announced the team has added a new giveaway date on this homestand's promotional calendar. On Thursday, Aug. 7, 15,000 fans will receive a Josh Donaldson Silhouette T-shirt, also sponsored by NetSuite, prior to Oakland's 7:05 p.m. game with the Minnesota Twins. In addition, fans that act quickly can take advantage of a special $10 ticket offer for field level tickets at that game while supplies last.
Tickets for the Aug. 7 promotion are open to all fans and are subject to availability. Fans can visit athletics.com/dynamicdeals to purchase tickets and athletics.com/promotions for more information about the giveaway.
