[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

1967 was the Athletics' last year in Kansas City, and they were next-to-last in league attendance. The franchise relocated to Oakland, CA before the 1968 season.

The Athletics were very young. Three regulars were rookies (including the first pick in the first amateur draft, Rick Monday), and none were older than twenty-seven. The rotation featured a twenty-one-year-old, two twenty-two-year-olds, and a twenty-three-year-old. Only one position player who played at all was over the age of thirty. Thirty-four-year-old Ed Charles registered seventy-four plate appearances. The three pitchers over the age of thirty totaled thirty-two and two-thirds innings. By BR's age formula, no team had had an average batters' age lower than the Athletics' since the 1920 Athletics, and no team had had an average pitchers' age lower than the Athletics' since the 1916 Athletics.

Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando and Joe Rudi, future staples of the Athletics' World Series teams of the early '70s, were rookies in 1967.

Bert Campaneris won his third consecutive American League stolen-base crown with 55 thefts, and the Athletics led the circuit in steals (132) and triples (50).
