Oakland, CA — Tonight, July 16, is Teacher Appreciation Night at the Oakland Coliseum as the Oakland A’s host the Seattle Mariners. The A’s are graciously hosting teachers from across OUSD and the Bay Area for tonight’s game, complete with free tickets and parking. Three OUSD teachers will get an even bigger treat, too. Before the game, the 2019 Teachers of the Year will get to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Media is welcome to cover the A’s honoring Oakland and Bay Area educators, and see OUSD’s Teachers of the Year throwing their best fastballs.
