OAKLAND (AP) — Coaches from the Oakland Athletics were sent scrambling after toilets in the home clubhouse backed up and overflowed before Saturday’s exhibition game against the San Francisco Giants.

It was the latest in a series of plumbing problems that have plagued the aging stadium, which was built in the late 1960s.

There were multiple problems last year alone.

In September, A’s players reported foul smells from the bathroom end of their dugout. That came after a clogged pipe caused a sewage backup and flooding on the bottom floor of the ballpark in June, sending the Seattle Mariners and A’s scrambling around in towels and heading for higher ground in the Oakland Raiders’ locker room.

A’s right fielder Josh Reddick took to Twitter, making light of the situation.
