It's a big day at the Oakland A's game today. It's Mug root beer float day.

This is the ninth annual event, which over the years has raised more than $200,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

From 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., root beer floats, served by local celebrities, will be priced at $2 each with additional money going to the foundation.

They'll also be selling mugs autographed by A's players leading up to the game against the Kansas City Royals.
