The Oakland Athletics will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary in Oakland throughout the 2018 season, which will include appearances by A's alumni, special promotions, events and giveaways. The A's have created a special 50th anniversary logo to commemorate this important milestone. The logo emphasizes the team's connection to Oakland through the use of the Oakland tree and city skyline. The logo's shape is inspired by the iconic Oakland Fox Theater's marquee. The color used in the number 50, Oakland tree, roof tops of the federal buildings, and logo border is a special 50th anniversary gold. The team will wear a modified version of the logo as a patch on the sleeve of home and visitor A's jerseys and on the side of their hats during the 2018 season.
Fans are invited to vote for the Oakland Athletics 50th Anniversary Team. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for up to 50 Oakland Athletics from a list of the top Oakland A's of all-time, as well as up to three write-in candidates. Voting will be active until the end of the 2017 regular season. After voting ends, the ballots will be tabulated and the honorees announced at a later date. The Oakland Athletics 50th Anniversary Team will be honored at events during the 2018 season.
