The Oakland Athletics franchise was established in 1901, but not in Oakland. Originally, they were the Philadelphia Athletics until 1954, when they moved to Kansas City. In 1968 The Kansas City Athletics moved to Oakland and become the Oakland Athletics we know today. Since being in Oakland, they play all of their home games at the Oakland Coliseum. In 2002, the Athletics won an American League record 20 games in a row with a team of very little payroll, which is depicted in the 2011 film 'Moneyball.'
The Athletics have had a lot of success in their existence. They have won 15 Division Titles and 15 American League Pennants. They have won an impressive 9 World Series Championships and are constantly overachieving even their own fans expectations. Hall of Famers who spent time with the Athletics include Rickey Henderson, Rollie Fingers, and Dennis Eckersley.
