Fred Maggiora, Chairman of the Oakland Baseball Committee, extends a written invitation to Walter O’Malley for the Dodgers to re-locate their club in Oakland for the next season. “If and when your Major League Baseball team considers moving to the Pacific Coast, the City of Oakland is very anxious to offer you a new home. We can offer two suitable Ball Park sites, close in to East Oakland and alongside the Oakland-San Francisco freeway, twenty-five minutes from downtown San Francisco. We have financing available and so stated in writing from private sources who will build a first-class, dome covered Ball Park, with a minimum of 45,000 seats.”
