The Oakland Athletics' 1999 season involved the A's finishing 2nd in the American League West with a record of 87 wins and 75 losses. In doing so, the Athletics finished with their first winning record since 1992. The campaign was also the first of eight consecutive winning seasons for the Athletics (the last of these coming in 2006).
August 18, 1999: Rich Becker was traded by the Milwaukee Brewers to the Oakland Athletics for a player to be named later. The Oakland Athletics sent Carl Dale (August 20, 1999) to the Milwaukee Brewers to complete the trade.
