    Whats the best way for an MLB team to celebrate its 50th year in its city? Theres really only way that makes sense with free tickets.
    Thats just what the Oakland Athletics are doing for their 50th year in Oakland. Only their free-ticket idea is enough to fill an entire stadium. The As are giving away every single ticket to their April 17 game against the Chicago White Sox. And Wednesday, they announced how anybody can sign up for tickets.
    This was part of the teams announcement:
    As we celebrate our 50th anniversary in Oakland, we are pleased to offer free tickets to our game on April 17, 2018. Exactly 50 years prior, on April 17, 1968, the As debuted here in Oakland and as an anniversary gift to the city, we are offering free tickets to the game vs the White Sox. Plus, parking is always free on Tuesdays.
    Free tickets will be available starting at 8 a.m. Jan. 10 on the As website. Season-ticket holders will automatically get free tickets.
    There should be an ample supply of free tickets, as last season the As opened up their upper deck seats, which had been covered in recent years. That gives Oakland Coliseum a capacity of 47,170 these days for baseball games.

    That is a great idea. Hopefully they find a way to fairly distribute the tickets so that both long time fans can get in but also so that many people who wouldn't otherwise get to go can get free tickets.
