The Oakland Athletics' 1969 season involved the A's compiling a record of 88 wins and 74 losses. With expansion to 12 teams in 1969, the American League had been divided into two 6-team divisions. In their first year in the new AL West, the Athletics finished second, nine games behind the Minnesota Twins. It was the first time they had finished in the first division since 1952.

Regular season

Reggie Jackson hit 47 home runs in 1969, and was briefly ahead of the pace that Roger Maris set when he broke the single-season record for home runs with 61 in 1961, and that of Babe Ruth when he set the previous record of 60 in 1927.
