When the A's announced the team made plans to move to Howard Terminal near Jack London Square, fans were excited, but many questions remained.
One, in particular, was how the players felt about it. One would assume it would be a positive reaction and the new, beautiful, waterfront location in Oakland could be a great way to recruit players to play for the Green and Gold.
Former A's player, Anthony Recker, made sure to ask Dave Kaval a few questions about this upcoming project during A's Pregame on NBC Sports California before the team faced the Blue Jays on Friday night.
"Have they talked about the players and what the accommodations are going to be like? I'd like to learn a little bit more about that," Recker, who is now part of NBC Sports California's broadcast, asked Kaval.
Kaval said it would be "top tier" in regard to taking care of the players. He has a plan to gather a group of players to inform them of the decision-making process on the design of the clubhouse and all of the amenities to "make sure it's world class."
Recker knows what it likes to spend most of his time at a stadium and in a clubhouse -- he played in the bigs for seven seasons. It's the players' second home, he explained.
"I eat there, I shower there -- I haven't slept there, but I practically do," Recker said.
Kaval also brought up the importance of making sure this future home of the A's was a place the organization could recruit good talent to.
He also gave an update saying on Tuesday there will be a vote from the county for approval for the A's to purchase the Coliseum site from them and there will be a vote in May from the board commission, as well.
It appears that everything is on track -- and if not, Kaval has certainly thought everything through.
