It seems like the Oakland A’s have been gunning for a new stadium for forever, but it seems as if it has finally come to an end and they will get what they want.

On Wednesday morning, the A’s revealed official plans to build a new stadium at the Howard Terminal site near downtown Oakland. The ballpark would seat approximately 34,000 people, making it the smallest in Major League Baseball.

The Athletics have played in the Coliseum since moving to Oakland in 1968 and has been noted as one of the worst facilities in baseball that has gave way to embarrassing moments, including disgusting sewage issues.

Extremely low attendance has the team tarping off large sections of the Coliseum’s upper deck, including the infamous “Mount Davis” in center field.
