The A's paid $1.75 million to lease the Oakland Coliseum this year. I imagine the plumbing would cost $2 million to fix.
It is not enough of an embarrassment to baseball for MLB to contribute so much as $0.01 from the central fund for either repairs to the existing stadium or funding for a new one. That's the embarrassment, in my opinion.
It's kind of ironic that some of the oldest baseball stadiums now are on the west coast.
