Josh Reddick, the right-fielding gold-glover for the Oakland A’s took fans on a surprise scavenger hunt throughout the City of Walnut Creek late Thursday night and early Friday morning.

Reddick, who is currently on the disabled list with a wrist injury, posted a message on his twitter account (@joshreddick16), saying….


And of course, some had to questions the safety of choosing Walnut Creek….


And they also had to wonder whether or not he was just joking….


Reddick then posted several clues throughout the next two hours….





There were a lot of happy fans….


And it seems like Reddick had fun in Downtown Walnut Creek….















Here’s the last, and probably best tweet of the night by Reddick….


Even if you’re not an A’s fan, you gotta love this guy.

The “bad” part of Walnut Creek? Does such a place exist in WC?

Gangstas read Claycord August 30, 2013 at 9:57 AM

3rd ave is “bad”

Bishop Estates August 30, 2013 at 10:19 AM

Very cool!

MadMom August 30, 2013 at 10:19 AM

That was awesome! What a fun thing to do!
@ JoMama…I was thinking the same thing! :p

Sheila August 30, 2013 at 10:20 AM

Sounds like fun! Sorry we missed it.

I grew up in WC. The apts./homes in downtown area aren’t that nice.

Anon August 30, 2013 at 10:30 AM

Notice he did not do this in Concord…………
Its a card- if you want one–go buy one
Don’t drive like hell & crash…..notice the Tilly’s store in the photo?? – that might be a clue………..

Mr. Pink August 30, 2013 at 11:07 AM

Very cool, Josh. Going to the game tonight. Wish you were playing!

Reddick Rules! August 30, 2013 at 11:11 AM

He’s actually seen in walnut creek often…must live nearby

Reddick Rules! August 30, 2013 at 11:24 AM

Hopefully the owners of Locust Street Mall see how embarrassingly dilapidated their “mall” is and fix it up!! Hanging letters and that old broken light fixture?? Be a responsible business owner!!

But wait! August 30, 2013 at 11:46 AM

No card left in a PIE shop?

JT August 30, 2013 at 12:35 PM

@ JoMama (#6)…. are you really that naive?
I used to have an apartment on Creekside Drive. That was one BAD area, druggies/fights/etc….. it is truly the “Monument Drive of Walnut Creek” over there…

Em Dubya August 30, 2013 at 12:46 PM

That’s great!

Life’s too short not to have a little creative fun.

Pleasant Hill Resident I August 30, 2013 at 1:17 PM

How fun! What a cool guy– I’m sure he ‘made the day’ of a lot of people.

@JoMama #6 Haha seriously! Although the Creekside area is kinda considered the ‘ghetto’ of Walnut Creek…

MommaToTwo August 30, 2013 at 1:46 PM

Creekside would be the worst part of WC…but always has been.

Bullwinkle August 30, 2013 at 2:30 PM

Wow im jealous

LMS August 30, 2013 at 8:41 PM

Not even an A’s fan but that is awesome!!!

Cassandra August 30, 2013 at 9:03 PM

We’re huge A’s fans! Sorry we missed this.

I love Josh Reddick! I hope everybody had fun.

Maybe next year……
