The Oakland Athletics are having plumbing problems, again. After a rainstorm this weekend, O.Co Coliseum’s toilets backed up and overflowed, into the team’s clubhouse, on March 29. (The rain canceled a scheduled exhibition game between the A’s and the San Francisco Giants.)
Outfielder Josh Reddick tweeted, “Back in Oakland? Sewage problems in clubhouse!! Yep. We are BACK BABAY!” Pitcher Sean Doolittle tweeted, “Commitment To Excrement! Just win baby!”
Oakland’s ballpark is not new to plumbing problems, sadly. Last September, a clogged pipe in the stadium led to, yes, flooding in the clubhouse.
