  • Greatest teams ever in Oakland--Campy, Reggie, Rudy, Bando, etc. wearibg white shoes! Three successive World Series! Oh, & Billy Martin, their wild & crazy manager!

  • 10-years old and stuck in class in Oakland when this game was played. No TV, no radio, no smartphone to get the score. The nuns could care less. But it was great to watch the news to find out we won. And even greater when the A's took down the Big Red Machine to bring the Bay its first World Championship!
