At that time, the Oakland Athletics made an attempt relocate to San Jose, despite the fact that the San Francisco Giants already had a minor league team in the same location. Major League Baseball ruled that the Athletics could not relocate to San Jose since it would be within 15 miles of another MLB team, albeit its minor league affiliate.
