OAKLAND (CBS SF) – The Oakland A’s are shifting their focus from building a new South Bay ballpark to retrofitting the Oakland Coliseum as part of a new 10 year lease agreement.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the new lease would run through the 2024 season and calls for the A’s to spend $10-12 million on upgrades to the facility, including new scoreboards.

“We hope to have (a deal) as soon as possible,” A’s managing partner Lew Wolff told Phil Matier and Andrew Ross of the Chronicle. “It’s really up to Oakland now.”

The franchise has been attempting to relocate south for years, but the Giants claim territorial rights to Santa Clara County. Baseball has been looking into the issue for years but has never ruled definitively on the matter, sparking an anti-trust lawsuit from the city of San Jose.
