If it's short for Oakland Athletics Baseball Club the short form should be "Oakland As" without an apostrophe.
I'm sure they didn't want t be confused with the adverb "as." And it just looks too much like the word "ass." Hey maybe that's why one of their past owners changed the mascot to a donkey. Even though the "Oakland Asses" has a nice ring to it, I don't think the MLB would approve of it.
