AWARDS: Best and Worst of the Week — the Oakland A’s and the San Jose Sharks

By Robert Haugh

The Good — The Leg Drop Award:

The A’s created a $1 million dollar fund to pay their ballpark workers during the COVID-19 crisis. The Warriors and Giants did the same, but their franchises are worth a lot more than the A’s.

The A’s also contributed an extra $100,000 to the Alameda County Food Bank and created a GoFundMe campaign.

Unlike the 49ers, the A’s did not make the contribution by taking it out of their employee’s crisis fund.

The Bad — The Jabroni Award:

The San Jose Sharks have only paid their arena workers through March and won’t say how much.

They also held a game on March 5 that over 14,500 attended at the SAP Center ignoring the warnings of County health officials and putting our community at risk.
