Clogged pipe blamed for A’s stadium sewage backup

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A clogged pipe was to blame for a sewage backup at the Oakland A’s stadium over the weekend that created a stink and pools of water in the clubhouses used by the A’s, the visiting Seattle Mariners and the umpires.

The two teams were forced to share the Raiders’ locker room a floor above the baseball clubhouses after Sunday’s game.

The Oakland Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1ax6zzj ) that officials found an unidentifiable mass in a sewer line. A’s Vice President of Stadium Operations Dave Rinetti says the mass has been cleared, and everything is expected to be in order for the A’s next home game on Tuesday.

A’s spokesman Bob Rose says the carpets in the clubhouses are being replaced while the A’s are on a seven-game road trip.
