The Oakland Athletics of the MLB hope to announce in the next few days the finalists of the possible locations of their new stadium, which will begin construction in Las Vegas.
The official announcement will be made after the World Series is over, reported Arash Markazi of The Mightier 1090. The new park would cost about $ 1 billion.
Athletics president Dave Kaval has made several trips to Las Vegas in recent days to pin down the construction site and discuss various details for the site.
MLB has reiterated on several occasions that the Oakland Coliseum, its current home, does not have the characteristics that a Major League park demands in terms of comfort for players and fans, so the team must announce soon the construction of its new home .
