A’s Playoff Game Forces 11:35 P.M. Start For Raiders Sunday
An Oakland A’s baseball playoff game at O.co Coliseum has forced the Oakland Raiders to delay their game against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday to 11:35 p.m. ET, rather than the originally scheduled 4:25 p.m. ET.
The game’s television broadcast will also change to NFL Network instead of CBS.
The A’s host the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of their American League Division Series on Saturday night, with a first pitch of 9:07 p.m. ET. Field crews need enough time to convert the playing surface from a baseball diamond to a football field and to get the appropriate stands in place in time to pass safety inspections.
