SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Lawyers for the city of San Jose and Major League Baseball squared off in federal court over a lawsuit accusing the baseball governing body of unlawfully preventing the Oakland Athletics from moving to San Jose.

U.S. District Judge Ronald Whyte asked both sides questions Friday during the nearly two-hour hearing. He made no decision.

San Jose filed an antitrust suit against MLB and Commissioner Bud Selig in June asking the court to find MLB in violation of antitrust laws. MLB filed a motion in August to toss the case.

The A's are not part of the lawsuit.

San Jose City Attorney Richard Doyle said the A's on Monday paid the city $25,000 to extend the team's option, which was set to expire on Nov. 1, for another year.

The San Francisco Giants object to any A's move to San Jose, claiming they have territorial rights to the market.
