Former A's star Reggie Jackson rips city of Oakland as Athletics prepare to move to Las Vegas

Apr 22, 2023

Reggie Jackson may be wearing a New York Yankees cap on his plaque in Cooperstown, but he spent nine of his 21 Hall of Fame seasons in Oakland with the Athletics.

Jackson was a perennial MVP candidate with the A's, winning one in 1973. His number 9 is retired by the organization he won three straight World Series with from 1972 to 1974.

But the A's will soon be history in Oakland and headed to Las Vegas.

The Athletics are following the NFL's Raiders to Vegas. The Raiders moved there in 2020 after spending the previous 25 seasons in the Bay Area. They called Oakland home from 1960-1981 before moving to Los Angeles.
