The Oakland Athletics' 1982 season involved the A's finishing fifth in the American League West with a record of 68 wins and 94 losses.

Although a disappointing season standings-wise, a major highlight of the 1982 campaign for the A's was left fielder Rickey Henderson breaking the record for most stolen bases in a season with 130. Henderson broke the record, previously held by Lou Brock, by swiping his 119th base of the season on August 27 against the Milwaukee Brewers.
