Major League Baseball Team Warned of Possible Riots in Oakland This Weekend

July 08, 2010  | 

Major League Baseball has called the Los Angeles Angels to warn them about the possibility of riots in Oakland this weekend during their series with the Oakland A's if a verdict comes down in the case of a former Bart officer who is on trial for shooting an unarmed man on a train platform.

The case, which involves a white officer and a black victim, has sparked racial tensions in the East Bay, so the trial was moved to Los Angeles. Jury deliberations resumed Thursday.

MLB security phoned Angels traveling secretary Tom Taylor to explain the situation and offer the team extra security. The Angels, who are scheduled to arrive in the Bay Area late Thursday night for a weekend series in Oakland, are staying in a San Francisco hotel and will bus to Oakland Coliseum.
