The Oakland A’s have returned back to HoHoKam Stadium after 36 years. The past year it has been under renovation and previous to that the Chicago Cubs had been using it.
Also keeping with the “36” trend, the 36 year old Barry Zito has rejoined the A’s on a minor league contract, with an invitation to spring training. Zito isn’t on the official roster, but that is what will make spring training interesting to watch. Zito came up in the A’s organization, crossed the bay for a 7 year contract, took the 2014 season off and now is back at the minors in Oakland.
Zito is definitely the player to watch this pre-season!
