OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Oakland Athletics owner Lew Wolff says the club has reached a 10-year lease agreement with the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority to stay at the Oakland Coliseum.
Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig commended both sides for reaching a deal on a lease extension, while offering, ''I continue to believe that the Athletics need a new facility and am fully supportive of the club's view that the best site in Oakland is the Coliseum site.''
The two-time AL West champion Athletics are still hoping for a new stadium.
The rundown Coliseum has had multiple sewage problems in the past year and an outage affecting the outfield lights on June 14.
