Major League Baseball has delayed for one week a report from a blue-ribbon panel on the Oakland A’s planned move to San Jose, according to Mayor Ron Dellums spokesman Paul Rose. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig had been scheduled to receive the report today. However, it remains unclear when and whether the report will be made public.
Selig convened the task force last year after receiving a letter from Dellums and Oakland City Council President Jane Brunner, asking the league to take another look at possible ballpark sites in Oakland. Dellums, Brunner, and club boosters then put forward two new stadium sites in Jack London Square. Baseball’s task force also examined possible sites in San Jose and at the former NUMMI auto plant in Fremont.
