A look at stories making headlines around the world of baseball.
• Meet the Sacramento A’s? That could be a possible scenario as Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson broaches the topic now that the Athletics have scrapped their ballpark plans for Fremont, Calif. Mayor KJ hasn’t actually spoken with Athletics ownership and was speaking in the context of what the city would do if the NBA’s Kings leave town. "If they leave for some strange reason, then we need to get somebody else in Sacramento," he said. "I don’t care if it’s the Oakland A’s, I don’t care if it’s the Golden State Warriors. We have to have a franchise, a top-notch, world-class franchise in our city because it helps elevate the profile of our city."
Meanwhile, the Mercury News reports that San Jose could be on deck as the next possible home for the Athletics. However, MLB would have to step in to make such a scenario a reality as the city remains within the Giants’ territory.
