OAKLAND (KCBS) — When the Oakland A’s play their next home game Tuesday night at O.co Coliseum, you’ll find two guys there who have been on the job before the team began playing for Oakland in 1968.
Hal Miller, 82, and Max Jacinto, 75, share the title of “employee number one.” In September of 1966, the Oakland Raiders played for the first time at the Coliseum and Miller and Jacinto were there tearing tickets. Jacinto is still doing it while Miller eventually became an event supervisor.
Both applied for the job when the Coliseum complex was still a hole in the ground. Basketball, baseball, concerts, the circus, roller derby—Jacinto and Miller have worked them all.
