The A's Elephant: After helping form the American League in 1901, New York Giants manager John McGraw dismissed the A's with contempt by calling them "The White Elephants," implying Connie Mack should not be allowed to spend money without supervision. Mack defiantly adopted the White Elephant as the team insignia and in 1902, the Athletics won their first American League pennant.
The White Elephant remained the team's mascot and later that decade, made its first appearance on the A's team sweaters. By 1920, Mack had fully adopted the Elephant as the team's symbol. The traditional "A" on the team's jersey was replaced by a blue elephant logo. In 1924, the blue elephant was replaced by the traditional white elephant on the team's jersey and the A's played better ball for the next few years.
In 1928, Mack decided the elephant had worn out its brief welcome on the A's jersey fronts and replaced the logo with the familiar "A" on the uniform. That was the last year for the elephant on the A's uniform until 1955, when the A's, now in Kansas City added the patch to their uniform sleeves. However, when Charlie Finley purchased the team in the early 1960's, the elephant was once again sent packing and replaced by, of all animals, a mule. Prior to the 1988 season, the A's brought back a new, more aggressive A's Elephant. In 1995, the traditional A's elephant was reincorporated into many of the team's promotional items and publications and is now a prominent feature on the A's uniform. Read more A's History here.
The A's offer a texting service guests can use to ask questions or notify staff of any issues, problems or concerns. Guests can text the word "Issue" followed by a space then their message and location to the number 69050. Dispatch will receive the message and respond accordingly.
