Oakland A’s Mural to Encourage Team Allegiance

The Oakland Athletes have a bunch of loyal fans in the city of their provenance. Oakland A’s aficionados have decided to spray paint a mural in order to encourage the team’s allegiance to their home town. It is wall graffiti with a smile instead of a leer.

Oakland A’s Mural to Encourage Team Allegiance

Art can reach out and embrace the universe in its quest for freedom of expression. Take the case of Oakland A’s fans such as Francisco Sanchez. He is an art teacher yet also draws murals on walls as a side job. This is not for the sake of profit or any gain other than for the moral support of his favorite team

Usually he can be seen painting the graffiti on the wall and a copper may pull over and greet him and then proceed to drive away. While this may seem odd to many who are against vandalism, in fact Sanchez is helping the community in a spirit of service and good faith. 

Since there is a certain amount of wavering in the Oakland A’s decisions regarding their future, it is people like Sanchez who want to relay a message of hope to the team. He is saying that he and many others are here and they care for the team. It is literally a procession of memories that has been inaugurated by Sanchez’s murals. 

The painting of the hero of the team, Rickey Henderson on the wall by Sanchez has had a surprising result. Henderson himself one day visited the site and was reported to have said: “Does that mean I am still alive?” It seems the team spirit of both athletes and artists is alive and well in Oakland.
