and Charlie Finley’s Swingin’ A’s.
The Oakland A's of the early 1970s were a revolutionary band of brawling Hall of Famers and the most transformative team in baseball history. Never before had an entire organization so collectively traumatized baseball's establishment with its outlandish behavior and business decisions, let alone an indisputably winning record: five consecutive division titles and three straight championships.
Jason Turbow is the author of the best-selling The Baseball Codes. He's written for The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Wired, among many publications. Glenn Schwarz, former sports editor of the San Francisco Examiner was there! He covered the A’s three consecutive World Series wins in the 1970’s. Schwarz now edits for MLB.com.
