Lewis Wolff

[edit] Biographical Information

Lewis Wolff and an ownership group purchased the Oakland Athletics in 2005, making Wolff the team's principal owner.

In the past, Wolff has been a co-owner of the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League and the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. His group also owns the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer.

One of Wolff's main priorities since purchasing the A's has been to try to find a new ballpark for the team, the Oakland Coliseum being considered both outdated and poorly located. He has tried to find a site in San Jose, CA, but has bumped up against the opposition of the owners of the San Francisco Giants, who own territorial rights to the area. This difficulty has prompted speculation that Wolff may seek to move the team out of the Bay Area entirely at some point.
