The A's are celebrating 50 years in Oakland in 2018 and will respond with free admission for fans.
And it just so happens to be when the White Sox are in town.
On April 17, 2018, the A's will not charge fans for their night game against the White Sox as Ricky Renteria and his boys head to the Bay Area for their only trip next season:
The A's and Sox are both vying for the worst record in the American League this season. Oakland woke up Wednesday morning with a 63-81 record while the South Siders sat at 57-87, two games behind the Philadelphia Phillies for the 2018 No. 1 overall pick.
The White Sox open their 2018 slate with a series in Kansas City against the Royals.
