The Medford Rogues will be paying tribute to the former Medford A’s on June 4 by wearing throwback uniforms. Fireworks will follow the game.
As a huge A’s fan since birth (the A’s moved to Oakland the year I was born, and I was born just a few miles from the Oakland Coliseum), it was extremely disappointing to me that the A’s no longer had an affiliate in Medford when I moved to Ashland in 2000. Next Saturday night I can pretend I’m watching the Medford A’s.
Darin Kracl was one of my best friends growing up. We cut school once or twice to catch an A’s game. I’m still jealous that he got to pitch for them.
