Mercury News: 75 Silicon Valley leaders endorse A’s move to San Jose

In a show of unity and a flexing of the region's political and economic might, 75 Silicon Valley CEOs have signed a letter to Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig urging the timely approval of moving the Oakland A's to San Jose.

The two-page letter, which was assembled by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, carries the signatures of well-known valley chief executives...

It is the latest and perhaps most impressive appeal to Selig from a range of avid supporters including the city of San Jose, a local pro-baseball grass-roots group and ordinary citizens, all pushing Selig to give the nod to San Jose. The letter drives home the point that Silicon Valley can deliver a level of corporate support to baseball that no other city in the Bay Area can match. It notes that the more than 300 member companies in the leadership group employ more than 250,000 local workers and generate more than $2 trillion in global revenue.
