The Oakland A’s won the American League West on the final game of the season. It was a hell of a ride for A’s fans as they came back from as many as 13 games back in June. The greatest part of the ride was Grant Balfour and his 24 saves this season. Each of Balfour’s 75 appearances began with the driving drum beat of Metallica’s One which caused fans to rage – specifically in the Right Field bleachers.
As you can see, the bleacher creatures aren’t the only Oakland residents who get metal during games.
Here is a picture of the Balfour Ragefest-ers.
And here is Balfour spraying fans with a hose following yesterday’s win. This has been Yardwork.
