Freemont? Freemont. No, I’ve never heard of it either, but that California city will soon be joining the likes of New York, Boston, Chicago, and Los Angeles as the home of a Major League Baseball franchise. As soon as the A’s can get their “privately financed” $300 million stadium built there, Billy Beane will be plying his trade in new environs. For refence, Freemont is about 20 miles south of Oakland, roughly midway between that city and San Jose.
