Several years later other teams joined them; the Athletics moved to Oakland from Kansas City, teams were founded in Seattle and San Diego, and an American League team joined the Dodgers in the Los Angeles area. In 1989 the first Bay Bridge Series was held between the Giants and A's. Gifts of Mrs. Hattiemay S. Brooks and Grace Stoval; Museum Purchase
