A’s troll Giants fans with SF-sized parking fee

Tampa Bay Rays vs Oakland Athletics
Fans watch from the upper deck as the Tampa Bay Rays face the Oakland Athletics at Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, Calif., on Wednesday, July 19, 2017.

The Oakland Athletics took a playful poke at a rival team Saturday, promising to charge San Francisco Giants fans more for Oakland Coliseum parking, and BART promptly capitalized on the joke.

Oakland announced today that parking will cost $50 for Giants fans for the 2018 season. A’s season-ticket holders can get prepaid parking for $10 and other Oakland fans will pay $30, the team announced.

However, A’s President Dave Kaval said in the announcement:

“Any Giants fan who yells, ‘Go A’s,’ at the parking gates will be charged only $30 to enter the Oakland Coliseum.”

Kaval has a history of offbeat promotions for the team. The A’s are scheduled to host the Giants in an exhibition game Sunday at 1:05 p.m. at the Coliseum.

The A’s announcement did not go unnoticed on social media. In response, BART tweeted:

BART was doubtless referring to the fact that those who take public transit don’t have to pay anything at all for parking.
