Find out when you can start tailgating for A’s ALDS Games 1 and 2

Oct 1, 2013, 9:52 AM PDT


Major League Baseball announced the A’s will take on the Detroit Tigers at 6:37 p.m. on Friday and 6:07 p.m. on Saturday at the Oakland Coliseum.

Shortly after the announcement, the die-hard A’s fans wanted to know when they could fire up their tailgate parties. An A’s spokesman tells Field of Teams that parking lot gates will open at noon before both games. Parking will set you back $20 on each day.

Don’t spread out too much, because the parking lots are expected to be packed. And don’t leave a hot grill under your car, because fires are bad.

The Oakland Coliseum gates will open at 4:30 p.m on Friday and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
