Oakland A's officially withdraw from Fremont

The A's send an letter to the city and officially withdraw from Fremont. The planned "protest" was changed to "rally" a few days ago. Now it becomes a night for "celebration." About 600 people show up at city hall, and many residents speak in the council meeting to express concerns about how city handle the process. Although the real reason for A's withdraw is the economy and they have better options, Fremont residents are glad to be the catalyst for the A's timely decision. BTW, today is Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday).
