The seats at the Oakland Coliseum will be packed with A's fans Tuesday for their 50th anniversary game. 

The A's play the Chicago White Sox Tuesday - and A's fans will be watching the game for free. 

As many as 65,000 people have RSVP'd to attend the game between the White Sox and A's. The A's were giving away the free tickets to people who requested them weeks ago, and then RSVP'd. 
If you don't have a ticket to the game Tuesday - it's too late to get one.

For fans who do have the free tickets, gates to the Coliseum are set to open at noon with free parking. The doors for season ticket holders will open at 3:30 p.m. The doors for general admission open at 4 p.m. and the game starts at 7 p.m.

The team's 50th anniversary coincides with the team's ongoing search for a new ballpark.

The A's recently announced they're pursuing two possible options at the same time - a new ballpark at the Howard Terminal over at the Port of Oakland, and a new ballpark at the existing Coliseum site.
