The Oakland Athletics are one of Major League Baseball’s most historic and successful teams, with a total of nine World Series championships in its existence. The franchise was founded in 1901 as one of the American League’s original charter teams and was first known as the Philadelphia Athletics, led by the legendary Connie Mack for the first 50 years of its existence. The team would play in the City of Brotherly Love for the next half-century until it moved in 1955 to Kansas City, becoming the Kansas City Athletics. The team then relocated one more time in 1968 when they became the Oakland A’s. The team would stay in place but change its name back to the original Athletics in 1986.

Athletics History

When the team was in Philadelphia, the ball club first played at Columbia Park until after the 1908 season, when it moved to Shibe Park, later known as Connie Mack Stadium, where the team would call home until it moved to Municipal Stadium in Kansas City after the 1954 season. After the team moved to Oakland in 1968, the club started playing its games at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, better known as the Oakland Coliseum, which it has shared with the Oakland Raiders.


The team had a lot of earlier success in its days in Philadelphia, winning the World Series in 1910, 1911, 1913, 1929 and 1930. After the club moved to Oakland, it would win four more World Series championships in 1972, 1973 and 1974 with a team led by stars Reggie Jackson, Vida Blue, Catfish Hunter, and Rollie Fingers, and then once more in 1989 behind the bats of Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco. In total, the franchise has won 15 AL Pennants, with the last coming in 1990. The A’s have also won the West Division 16 times, winning their last two in 2012 and 2013, and have also scored three Wild Card berths, including their last one in 2018.

Hall of Famers

Connie Mack was one of the early faces of the ball club during its tenure in Philadelphia, serving as the longest-tenured manager in MLB history, leading the major leagues in both wins (3,731) and games managed (7,755). One of Mack’s early stars was Hall of Fame third baseman Home Run Baker, who played for the Athletics from 1908 to 1914, and had been called the “original home run king of the majors,” hitting 96 home runs in his career. Baker would play on the first three World Series championship teams and would lead the AL in home runs four straight years from 1911 to 1914.

For younger fans of the team in Oakland, the name Rickey Henderson come to mind. Henderson was a familiar face in the Oakland outfield, playing with the Athletics from 1979 to 1984, then from 1989 to 1993, then in 1994 to 1995, and one last stint with the club for the 1998 season. Henderson would wrap up his career with 10 All-Star appearances and two World Series championships (one with the Athletics) and 3,055 hits, 297 home runs, 1,115 RBIs and 1,406 stolen bases.
