The A's home stadium bears the brand name But the team referred to it as the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in their game notes during the home opener Friday night against the Seattle Mariners. The name switch prompted questions about whether the Coliseum would be looking for yet another corporate sponsor just one year into a six-year deal with online retailer, which gave the stadium the moniker.

SMG General Manager Ron Little said the name would be staying put. SMG oversees operations at the Coliseum, which includes the stadium and the Oracle Arena. The A's refuse to accept the name, Little said. It's a sticky issue that the lawyers for both sides -- the A's and Coliseum -- are still trying to iron out.
