Oakland A’s president apologizes for ‘totally unacceptable’ post-game meals


OAKLAND, Calif. (KRON) — The Oakland A’s president has publicly apologized for “totally unacceptable” meals given to Minor League Baseball players after the games.

The photos show a cheese sandwich with a bit of lettuce and tomato, with a side of what appears to be coleslaw.

A second photo shows a saucy tortilla with two small pieces of chicken, with some bell pepper and onion.

The Advocates for Minor Leaguers account tweeted, “No employer would serve these meals to employees they care about.”

A’s president Dave Kaval said the food comes from a third-party vendor that has since been fired. He says they discovered the ‘unacceptable’ meals several weeks ago.

“We will redouble our efforts to provide the best options for our team at every level,” Kaval added.

The A’s have six minor league affiliates, according to Minor League Baseball.
