Sports fans, and fans of baseball in particular, will find lots to love and explore when visiting Oakland. Baseball home games are played at the Oakland Coliseum, a stadium that the local baseball team also shares with the Oakland football franchise. This football team has moved to and from Oakland over the years, but its most passionate fans always are close behind. These notorious fans sit together in a section of end zone seats known as The Black Hole—admittedly a dour moniker. But the costumes and language more than live up to the team's and the city's colorful reputations. If you make your sports-centric trip to Oakland at the right time of year, you can catch both the baseball team and the football team.
Nearby Oracle Arena was home to local basketball team when they won a record 73 games during the 2015-16 regular season. It also hosted multiple fights by a multi-division champion Oakland native considered to be the pound-for-pound champion when he retired in 2017.
If you're looking for sports on a smaller scale, check out Mosswood Park basketball courts. Just know what you're getting into if you plan to get in a run. The courts at the Easy Bay public park were a proving ground for a number of professional league basketball stars before they hit it big.
That's just a small sampling, but if you're looking for a place to experience sports and the passions they elicit, Oaktown is your destination no matter which sport happens to be in season. There are also the baseball and football cross-bay rivals in San Francisco, but don't tell the Black Hole if you plan to go there.
