History, Comments, Contributions
The 1967 Kansas City Athletics were the last edition of the team to play in Kansas City, and they were next-to-last in the American 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 27. The rotation featured a 21-year-old, two 22-year-olds, and a 23-year-old. Only one position player who played at all was over the age of 30. 34-year-old Ed Charles registered 74 plate appearances. The three pitchers over the age of 30 totaled 32 2/3 innings. By BR's age formula, no team had had an average batters' age lower than the Athletics' since the 1920 Philadelphia Athletics, and no team had had an average pitchers' age lower than the Athletics' since the 1916 Athletics.
