[edit] Team History

The Oakland Oaks were a member of the Pacific Coast League from 1903 to 1955. The Oaks won the league pennant in 1912, 1927, 1948 (the team of the famous Nine Old Men), 1950 and 1954.

1927 Oakland Oaks champions.

Minor league legend Buzz Arlett was an Oak from 1918-1930, starting out as a pitcher then converting to the outfield. Frenchy Uhalt roamed the outfield from 1929-1936. Bill Raimondi was the catcher from 1932-1949, and he played all 9 positions in the last game of the 1943 season. Jimmie Reese was the 2B from 1923-1929 after a cup of coffee in 1923. Harry Krause pitched from 1917-1928, winning 20 three times. The 1946-1948 Oaks were managed by future Hall of Famer Casey Stengel. Lefty O'Doul managed the club in 1955.

After the 1955 season, the Oaks relocated to Vancouver, BC, Canada, and Oakland was without professional baseball until the Oakland Athletics of the American League began play in 1968, after relocating from Kansas City. An oddity occured when a later Vancouver team, the Canadians, was relocated to Sacramento, CA in 1999 and became the Oakland Athletics' AAA affiliate. With the RiverCats' new homepark, Raley Field, not yet completed the team played its first homestand in Oakland. Although it was at McAfee Coliseum rather than Oaks Park and a different Vancouver franchise, it still reversed a 44-year-old move.
