Amazing Oakland A’s players and coaches gather to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the 1989 World Series championship. The on-field reunion is pregame tomorrow.
Josh Donaldson on Derek Jeter: “You just can’t help but root for him, because, what a career. He’s a guy who wants to play every day, who wants to be accountable on and off the field, and that’s something I’ve tried to emulate.” Donaldson’s first Mid-Summer Classic will be played alongside Jeter in his last.
The Home Run Derby is tonight! Every Yoenis Cespedes and Josh Donaldson home run will score you $1 off A’s tickets. Learn more!
