New A's president Dave Kaval opened his door to fans for 'office hours'

The Athletics' new president, Dave Kaval, took a bold step on Tuesday to help connect with the fans. He opened his office doors to meet with any and all interested fans for what was billed as "Office Hours," but could have just as easily been promoted as Big Block of Cheese Day.
The event was only supposed to last from 3-5pm:

But the allotted time was not quite enough, and Kaval ended up conducting short meetings with the fans who showed up for five and a half hours. Afterwards, he tweeted enthusiastically about the positive interactions he had with A's fans:

As for whether or not he'll heed the free agency advice of the young A's fan with a bright future, only time will tell.
