Come on out to FanFest for your first opportunity to meet your 2006 Oakland A's! Current players and coaches will be joining your favorite A's players from years past to make FanFest a special event for the best fans in baseball. Scheduled to appear are: Huston Street, Mark Kotsay, Dan Haren, Joe Blanton, Jason Kendall, Nick Swisher, Rich Harden, Mark Ellis, Milton Bradley, Bobby Kielty, Ken Macha, Dennis Eckersley and many more.
FanFest is great for fans of all ages and the entire family! Beginning at 10am, you will have the opportunity to get autographs, participate in Q & A sessions, have your picture taken with an A's player or World Series trophy, purchase authentic game-used gear and take a behind the scenes tour of the A's clubhouse, weight room, umpire's room and dugout. Also scheduled is a "Baseball: 101" clinic where adults and children alike can learn the fundamentals of baseball straight from the pros! And of course FanFest would not be complete without music, interactive games, and food!
All net proceeds from the event benefit the Oakland A's Community Fund and the Cure Autism Now Foundation. Founded in 1995, the Cure Autism Now Foundation (CAN) is an organization of parents, clinicians and leading scientists committed to accelerating the pace of biomedical research in autism through research, education and outreach. Since its founding, Cure Autism Now has committed over $12 million in research, resource establishment, outreach and awareness. At the event, fans will have the opportunity to visit various booths and learn more about the disorder.
This is the sixth year that the A's are bringing you this family friendly event at the stadium. Single game tickets will go on sale at the Gate D Box Office at 9:00am. Tickets for the autographs will go on sale at the Coliseum Will Call Ticket Windows at 9:00am.
