MLB threatens to move Athletics to Las Vegas if Oakland doesn’t drop lawsuit, officials says

The Athletics could move to Las Vegas if the city of Oakland does not drop its lawsuit against Alameda County and the A’s, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf said Tuesday.

Alameda County is attempting to sell its stake in ownership to the A’s, but Oakland is suing to try and stop the transaction.

The move apparently blindsided the A’s and prompted MLB commissioner Rob Manfred to tell local government officials the team might relocate to Las Vegas if the lawsuit isn’t dropped,

The San Francisco Chronicle first reported the threat, and Schaaf confirmed it in an interview with KTVU
