A's Spring Training 2012: Oakland Returns Home To Face Giants In Exhibition Series

The Oakland A's regular season has officially begun, but they'll go back to playing exhibition games before their regular season begins again on United States soil.

After splitting a short two-game series with the Seattle Mariners in Japan on Wednesday and Thursday, Oakland returns to action on Monday April 2nd in a game at AT&T Park against National League rivals, the San Francisco Giants. The Giants will then make a short trip to Oakland on Tuesday April 3rd for a game at the Coliseum.

Finally, the third game of the series on Wednesday April 4th will be played at AT&T Park again. Since all games in this series are exhibition games, they will not count towards either of the team's regular season records.

The two-game series in Japan a week before every other team's opening days has created a weird situation for some ball clubs — with this being one of those weird situations.

The Seattle Mariners will also play five games in Arizona before resuming their regular season on Friday, April 6th in a game against none other than the Oakland Athletics.
