It turns out there will be a preview for the Bay Bridge Series in 2020.
The Giants and A's will play two exhibition games against each other next week, with each hosting one of the contests.

Coronavirus forced a reduction of the 2020 regular season to just 60 games, but the rival squads still will play their normal six-game season series, with three games in San Francisco from August 14-16 and in Oakland September 18-20.
Although fans won't be in attendance for either the exhibition or regular-season contests between the Giants and A's in 2020, the crosstown rivalry likely will bring an added intensity to the matchups.
For many fans, it'll just be nice to have some live Bay Area baseball back on the airwaves.
