Oakland A's and their fans celebrate back-to-back A.L. West titles
The Green and Gold are back in the playoffs, wrapping up their second straight American League West division title on Sunday before they were even off the field thanks to the Kansas City Royals. Here's what people (and players) saw and said as clinching day unfolded at O.co Coliseum.
- A's fans near and far savored the accomplishment for hours. The players finally could let loose about 2 hours after the fact -- after they had finished off the Twins 11-7

- It was the 11th time -- out of 16 division titles -- the A's have clinched at home
