Diesel, A Bookstore | 5433 College Avenue, Oakland, CA
Diesel welcomes Jason Turbow to the store to discuss and sign, “Dynastic, Bombastic, Fantastic: Reggie, Rollie, Catfish, and Charlie Finley’s Swingin A’s” on Tuesday.
The Oakland A’s of the early 1970’s were the most transformative team in baseball history. Never before had an entire organization so collectively traumatized baseball’s establishment with its outlandish behavior and business decisions, let alone an indisputably winning record: five consecutive division titles and three straight championships. The drama that played out on the field was exceeded only by the drama in the clubhouse and front office. But those A’s, with their garish uniforms and outlandish facial hair, redefined the game for coming generations.
