Homegrown Heroes: Oakland A's at 50

Share your love for Oakland’s hometown team with a new installation in the Gallery of California History celebrating the Oakland A’s 50th anniversary. Honor three iconic homegrown heroes—Dennis Eckersley, Rickey Henderson, and Dave Stewart—and get up close with rare photographs, high school yearbook images, and sports memorabilia worn by the players to learn about their roots in The Town and contributions to the team. Reminisce about the legendary 1989 Battle of the Bay World Series with a poster from the OMCA Collection, and contribute your own baseball memories of playing America’s favorite pastime or attending an A’s game.

More details about the exhibition can be found in the press release
