Oakland Athletics Dealing With Sewage Flooding Again at O.Co Coliseum

The Oakland Athletics really need a new stadium.

Sewage flooding has happened once again at the O.Co Coliseum as rain poured down in Oakland on Saturday morning, hours before the A’s and Twins are set to play. Keep in mind that if the A’s win and the Rangers lose, Oakland will clinch the AL West Division.

However, that may be overshadowed by yet another sewage issue. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle sent out these tweets with the details:

And saving the best for last:

Ryan Cook told John Hickey of the San Jose Mercury News that there was a “sewage volcano” in the coach’s office.

Here is how the visitor’s dugout looks thanks to a picture tweeted out by Twins’ pitcher Glen Perkins. He describes it as “four feet of standing water/potential sewage”:

This isn’t the first time that the Coliseum has dealt with sewage problems this season. In June, both locker rooms flooded with raw sewage after an A’s-Mariners game. Earlier this week, it happened again, with the A’s bathroom flooding into the dugout.
