The Port of Oakland, Calif., is trying to build a stadium for the city’s Major League Baseball team, the Oakland Tribune reports.

The port is seeking to convert a shipping terminal that was recently abandoned into a new waterfront stadium for the Athletics baseball team.

The team, which currently shares its home with the National Football League’s Oakland Raiders, has expressed doubt about the viability of the port location for a new baseball park, according to the report.

Oakland leaders are hoping to use the proposal to dissuade the A’s from considering moving to San Jose.
