The Loneliest Team in Baseball

If you’ve ever been to a baseball game and felt that you were the only one cheering for a team, you’ll understand how the Oakland A’s can be very lonely. The A’s midlevel administration and owner, John J. Fisher, find themselves torn between their devoted fan base and offended critics. Meanwhile, the team’s players must deal with losing their friends and teammates.

One of the more famous stories is about the Oakland Athletics’ match against the Tampa Bay Rays. While playing in the old coliseum, the Rays’ players were able to hear the taunts of their opponents from the empty stands. In one game, Rays outfielder Brett Phillips was taunted by a fan for his batting average, but he didn’t hear it.
