March 27: It’s Opening Night!
A’s fans! It’s still pregame, but check the scene outside the Tokyo Dome and the warm ups on the field. The A’s are finished batting practice. Just two hours until first pitch. Happy Opening Night everyone!
Opening Series is sold out.

We spy a couple A’s fans.
And a couple more.
A’s clubhouse manager Steve Vucinich is interviewed by Chris Townsend. “Vuc” has been with the Oakland A’s since the first game in 1968. Listen to Townsend pregame and postgame TODAY on 95.7 FM THE GAME.
Mickey Morabito, Director of Team Travel, on-field during pregame. This is his 41st Opening Day. He started as a bat boy with the Yankees.
Let’s get this started. LET’S GO A’s!
