OAKLAND (CBS SF) – It may seem to be an unlikely pairing, but the 2012 baseball season is arriving in Oakland with a connection to the deadly Oikos University shooting rampage.

Baseball fans coming to Oakland for Friday evening’s A’s game – the team’s home opener – are being asked to sign a book of condolences for the victims of the tragedy.

Oikos University sits just a short distance from the O.Co Coliseum, and a memorial continued to grow at the vocational school for the victims of the attack. Cards, candles, stuffed animals and Easter lilies were all recently placed there – a tribute to those who died or were wounded in Monday’s deadly shooting spree.

KCBS’ Tim Ryan Reports:

The campus, however, remained surrounded by yellow police tape. Students were only briefly allowed back in to gather their belongings from classrooms.
