Oakland Athletics season ticket holders will have to pay nearly double for their seats next season.

The San Francisco Chronicle cites one example, saying the cost of a 24-game ticket plan for seats in the left field bleachers will jump from $456 to $800.

The price caught many fans off guard, considering the team may move to Las Vegas if the Oakland City Council doesn’t approve plans for a waterfront ballpark.

“I’m not planning on renewing,” said Hernandez, 22, of Oakland. “I just feel like after everything that’s happened this season, this is kind of like the last straw for me. I feel like it’s a slap in the face to some A’s fans — or at least to me, it’s a slap in the face.”

Nikki Medoro and Bret Burkhart question the reasoning behind the Oakland Athletics significantly raising the price of next season’s tickets? 

“Some people are saying they are doing this to make [the Oakland A’s] fan base show not show, and then, of course it makes it more enticing to leave,” explained Nikki.
