Oakland Athletics Backstory

There were many Philadelphia teams named the Athletics throughout the latter half of the 19th century in various leagues, both amateur and professional. It therefore came as no surprise when the American League started a team with that same name in 1901. The franchise has moved around a couple of times, playing in the following cities:

  • Philadelphia (1901-1954)
  • Kansas City (1955 - 1967)
  • Oakland (1968 – present)

Oakland Athletics Moneyball

In order to compete successfully against clubs in larger cities, like New York and Los Angeles, the management of the Oakland Athletics developed a collection of front-office strategies in the late ’90s, which have been further refined over the years. This novel approach was documented in the book “Moneyball” by Michael Lewis. Moneyball techniques include investing heavily in the farm system, signing players whose skills are undervalued according to traditional baseball statistics and releasing star players when their salaries get too high. The application of these methodologies has kept the Athletics competitive while holding payroll within the means available to a team in a smaller market.
