Baseball Tickets for Your Team
what does the elephant balancing on the ball mean on their jersey?
It refers to when the team was bought by Shibe in the 1900s and the manager of the Giants said he was buying a "White Elephant" (Or something that seems impressive, but isn’t). Shibe liked the comment and decided to use the Elephant as a mascot as a joke.
That means for Strength and Stablity, They have a Mascot whose an Elephant too, and Its Symbol of the Republican Party, so You can’t Stop the Elephant and the Lion too.
Never noticed it but I’m guessing it means the balance and power of the A’s.
