Athletics Franchise History

With three different homes and even more varying styles of play, the Athletics have established a reputation – several times over – of not abiding to the norm. The result has been nine World Series since their birth in Philadelphia back in 1901.

Managing in that first season was Connie Mack – a position he would hold for the next half-century. The first 14 years of A’s baseball were as successful as any team in the sport, with pitcher Rube Wadell and second baseman Eddie Collins – who, along with Home Run Baker, Jack Barry and Stuffy McInnis, comprised the “$100,000 infield.”

They reached the 1905 World Series, ultimately falling in five to the New York Giants. They then went back-to-back in 1910 and 1911 with victories over the Chicago Cubs and Giants, respectively. It became three out of four when the Athletics beat New York again in 1913.

Mack had established himself as one of the premiere managers in the game and the leader of the American League’s first dynasty. Sporting a suit and tie on the bench, he stressed intelligence and fair play over a hard-scrabble style.

But his dynasty crumbled due to finances. Unable to hold on to his best players, Mack would see his A’s tumble to seven consecutive last-place finishes from 1915-21. By 1927, Philadelphia recovered to the point of a second-place effort. Two years later, the Athletics embarked on another stellar run.

The top players during this stretch included: pitcher Lefty Grove, hitter extraordinaire Al Simmons and the powerful Jimmie Fox. All of them would eventually find their way to Cooperstown. Through a 104-46 record in 1929, the A’s won a five-game World Series over Chicago. They won 102 and took down the St. Louis Cardinals in six games the very next year.

It appeared a third straight would be in order for 1931. An 107-win campaign and a career-high 31 victories for Grove gave clear indication that Philadelphia was the dominant club. But the Cardinals weren’t just going to be pushed over on the road to a three-peat. Not only did they take the A’s to the limit in the series, they won the deciding seventh game with a 4-2 victory at home.

Just as was the case nearly two decades prior, the Athletics became a second-division team – and that status stuck with them for a while. Through Mack’s final years on the bench and into the early 1950s, this was a team that against couldn’t compete financially and, thus, was not worthy of pennant consideration. By 1954, the Phillies had surpassed the A’s as Philadelphia’s most popular team.

What’s more, the club was near bankrupt – forcing ownership to sell the club to Chicago businessman Arnold Johnson. He owned a stadium in Kansas City, which would be the new home for the Athletics. The move out west wouldn’t translate to success.

In 13 seasons, the club never won more than 74 games in a season. It lost at least 100 games on four separate occasions. The Kansas City Athletics, during their final years, did develop several standout players in the minor league system – but they would blossom in a new location.

Johnson had sold the team to Charlie O. Finley in 1960. No one in baseball knew what outlandish maneuvers were to follow. Finley, who used a mule as a mascot, spent the better part of seven years seeking relocation. Dallas, Atlanta, and Louisville were among the candidates. But, ultimately, it was Oakland that won out.

And just as the A’s began their tenure in the Bay Area, those hot prospects were bubbling up to the major league level. Jim “Catfish” Hunter threw a perfect game on May 8, 1968. Reggie Jackson hit homers at a record pace in 1969 before tailing off and ending up with an impressive 47. Vida Blue, Joe Rudi, Sal Bando, Rollie Fingers and Bert Campaneris would also join the fold. In short order, the A’s once again became a dynasty.

This team would have been worthy of a reality show. Aside from the obvious talent, Oakland’s players regularly fought amongst each other. They wore bright, garish uniforms (green, bright yellow, and white). Finley paid bonuses to those who grow out the hair on their head and face. Most obliged, including closer Fingers with his distinctive handlebar mustache. These A’s were the most unique team in baseball. And from 1972-74, they were the best.

Manager Dick Williams guided this wild bunch to an unlikely title over the powerful Cincinnati Reds in a seven-game affair in ‘72. As heavy favorites, they would do the same for ’73, overcoming the underdog New York Mets with the help of series MVP Reggie Jackson (who missed the previous year’s Fall Classic with a hamstring injury).

The 1974 series against the Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t go the distance. After splitting the first two at Dodger Stadium, the A’s took care of business up the coast on their home field. The Oakland Coliseum was sent into celebration yet again with a five-game triumph and a third straight title.

But this success didn’t come without turmoil. In addition to the squabbles within the clubhouse, players openly hated Finley – who tended to micromanage and became too hands-on. In Game 2 of the 1973 World Series, Mike Andrews’ two errors proved costly in a loss. Finley forced Andrews to sign a false affidavit claiming he was injured. Teammates and manager Williams backed Andrews – who got a pinch-hitting role in Game 4. Finley ordered that he be benched for the remainder of the series. An infuriated Williams resigned shortly after the repeat, leading to Alvin Dark taking them through the ’74 campaign.

While Finley’s meddling didn’t seem to matter in the early part of the decade, it eventually caught up with him.

Hunter, Blue and Jackson all left via the new free agency rules. Thus, the A’s suffered mightily. From 1977-79, they were no better than a next-to-last place club and Finley would soon relinquish ownership to Walter A. Haas.

But two men helped turn it back around. The belligerent, but brilliant, Billy Martin came in as manager in 1980. His credo was aggressiveness and speed, dubbed “Billyball.” The best player to execute this plan was Rickey Henderson. En route to a career in which he would become baseball’s all-time stolen base leader, Henderson would swipe at least 100 bags in three of the next four seasons – including a record 130 in 1982.

The year prior, Oakland’s renaissance culminated in a return trip to the ALCS. By winning the AL West during the first half of a split 1981 season (done so due to a player’s strike), the A’s went to the makeshift Division Series – where they beat the Kansas City Royals. Martin lost to his former New York Yankees in the next round.

As he did at his other stops, Billy wore out his welcome with management quite quickly. It wouldn’t be until 1986 when the A’s would have noted leadership on the bench.

Coinciding with LaRussa’s arrival was the influx of more young talent. Jose Canceco and Mark McGwire displayed prodigious power (although, steroids later proved to be helpful) and became known as the “Bash Brothers” with their forearm greeting after one hit a home run.

They hit many. McGwire set a rookie record with 49 in 1987, while Canseco not only had 42 of his own in ’88, he also stole 40 bases to become the first 40-40 player in big league history. The A’s won 104 games during the 1988 season and were the dominant American League team. That was further proved when they swept the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS.

The last step was the World Series. And when it became clear that their opponent would be the undermanned Los Angeles Dodgers, it wasn’t a matter of if the A’s would win, but in how many games.

A Jose Canseco grand slam appeared to set the tone, but it would be Kirk Gibson who would pave the way for Hollywood heroics. The injured Gibson launched a two-out, ninth inning home run against renowned closer Dennis Eckersley to give the Dodgers an amazing 5-4 win.

What was a thrilling moment for L.A. and baseball most everywhere; it was a devastating blow to the Athletics. They were shut down by Orel Hershiser in Game 2. And although they managed a Game 3 victory on a Mark McGwire homer, it was just a temporary revival. The Dodgers took Game 4 in Oakland and then Hershiser closed it out in Game 5.

There would be no hangover for the A’s in ’89. They came back stronger – especially when they re-acquired Henderson (who had gone to the Yankees in 1985). His presence at the top of the lineup was key to another AL West title and an ALCS win over the Toronto Blue Jays. The A’s wouldn’t have to go far in terms of travel during the World Series – facing the San Francisco Giants. The “Bay Area World Series” began with Oakland taking the first two at home.

An earthquake, though, just prior to what would have been Game 3 at Candlestick Park halted the series for 10 days. When it resumed, the A’s picked up where they left off. Unlike the lack of offensive production in 1988’s series, the A’s bats were alive against the Giants. Canseco, Henderson, Dave Henderson and Dave Parker all tallied home runs.

Dave Stewart, an Oakland native who was very active in helping the earthquake relief process, won twice and earned MVP honors. Eckersley closed out Game 4 and a sweep – the franchise’s ninth World Championship.

That award was part of a revival for Stewart. Once considered an afterthought on many rotations, Stewart would win at least 20 games in four straight seasons (1987-90).

Determined for a repeat, Oakland returned its dominant self back to the World Series with virtually the same group. Like 1988 and 1989, the A’s were the heavy favorites to beat the Reds. Unfortunately, the end result was similar to the Dodgers’ tale.

Cincinnati won the first two at home, and then carried that momentum to the West Coast. Canseco and McGwire struggled at the plate, as Reds pitching was nearly untouchable. Oakland fell in four straight – resulting in another unsatisfying end to the season.

The Athletics would make the postseason just once in the next nine years. By the end of this downturn, LaRussa, Canseco and McGwire had departed.

A new philosophy was about to be infiltrating Oakland Coliseum. Once against dealing with a low payroll and a rickety home park, general manager Billy Beane began to examine players in ways not seen before. This value system gained the famous term, “Moneyball.”

By reaching the playoffs five times in a seven-year span, this mythology spread throughout Major League Baseball, became the inspiration of a book by author Michael Lewis and eventually found its way to the silver screen. Since Beane took over, Oakland has been consistently good – but without another title to show for it.

Now he, and those supporting the A’s, can only hope that his once-revolutionary theories will one day translate into a Hollywood ending by way of a World Championship.
