Oakland Athletics Baseball's sponsorship directly funds the work of the Unicode Consortium in enabling modern software and computing systems to support the widest range of human languages. There are approximately 7,000 living human languages. Fewer than 100 of these languages are well-supported on computers, mobile phones, and other devices. AAC donations are used to improve support for digitally disadvantaged languages, and to help preserve the world’s linguistic heritage.
The team adopted the three characters as visual representation for Oakland Athletics Baseball. The organization's nine World Series titles and 15 American League Pennants make the Athletics one of the most storied clubs in Major League Baseball. The Athletics take great pride in the achievements of the past, and view them as a challenge to push further. The Oakland Athletics are committed to creating winning experiences that encompass the many aspects of the game and the Oakland community. — Oakland Athletics Baseball
