STOCKTON, CA - The Stockton Ports will extend their partnership with the Oakland Athletics as the team's Single-A affiliate through 2016 as part of a two year extension.
A pregame ceremony will take place Tuesday evening at Banner Island Ballpark in Stockton before first pitch of their game against the San Jose Giants - beginning a three game series.
Stockton has been a part of the Oakland A's family since they began their partnership in 2005. The team's first big league partnership was with the Chicago White Sox in 1949.
