The Oakland Athletics' 50th season in Oakland has not gone without celebration.
A's FanFest kicked off in January with a full day of fun activities for families with players, Q&A sessions, autograph & photo sessions, memorabilia sale, food trucks and more in Jack London Square.
The inaugural game was on April 17th, with Lew Krausse, who was the A's starting pitcher for their first game in Oakland on April 17, 1968, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Both the A's and White Sox also wore throwback '68 jerseys.
The same morning as their 50th Anniversary game, some of the team (and Stomper) also visited local hospitals to pass out "Future Slugger" onesies and meet with newborns who were born on the same day as their inaugural match.
To help commemorate the team's 50 years in Oakland, the Oakland A's also introduced Stomper in the Town, a public art event that features 50 life-size statues of the A's mascot. The statues were created by local artists and placed throughout Oakland for the 2018 season.
We challenge you to try and find them all! Download the map and checklist to get started.

Please note, some Stomper statues may be temporarily removed during the season to receive maintenance. They will return to their listed locations once complete.
