Oakland A's Fully Commit To Relocating To Las Vegas

The Oakland A's now appear fully committed to moving to Las Vegas. Like, for real this time.

On Wednesday, they entered a binding purchase agreement for 49-acres of land just west of The Strip, which will be home to a future ballpark.

The land was owned by Red Rock Resorts, the parent company of Station Casinos, and is located just across the I-15 from Park MGM and T-Mobile Arena. The A's and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred say the team is turning the sole focus of its stadium plans to Las Vegas.

A's President Dave Kaval is planning to build a 35-thousand seat partially retractable roof stadium at an estimated cost of one-point-five-billion-dollars. 

Las Vegas Athletics, coming soon. No word on when, but it's coming.

In fact, @lasVegasLocally posted a mock up of a potential hat design on social media:
