Time lapse captures Coliseum’s overnight venue change

Oakland sports fans had a memorable few days at Coliseum.

The Athletics walked off on the Tigers in Game 2 of the ALDS Saturday night, and the Raiders followed up with an impressive 27-17 victory over the San Diego Chargers Sunday night.

But the real stars of the weekend were the grounds crews who helped transform the venue from a baseball stadium into a football stadium in less than 24 hours.

We’ve all seen a time lapse once or twice before, but this one certainly captures the hard work it takes to actually pull off a venue change in a rather short amount of time.
