After an odd 2020 season, the Oakland A’s welcomed 10,436 fans to the Oakland Coliseum for an Opening Day matchup against the rival Houston Astros.
Following a troubling 2019-20 offseason with the sign stealing scandal, the Astros faced fans on the road for the first time since Jose Altuve and others were publicly outed by a Major League Baseball investigation.
