Giants plan to post cut-out images of fans in the stands


The San Francisco Giants are doing their part to make sure their fans are there when baseball returns next month – at least in print.In a letter sent to subscription holders on Thursday, the Giants announced that games at Oracle Park will be played without fans due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the team will allow subscription holders to send a picture of them -same to place on a cutout which will be displayed in the stands during home games.

Calling this the Giants’ fan cutoff program, the team said the cuts will be an opportunity for fans “to be in Oracle Park even when you are watching the game at home.”

The cutouts will be made of weather-resistant material and will be placed as close as possible to the seats of season ticket holders, according to the Giants. For an amount of $ 99, the team also gives non-subscribers the opportunity to see their cut images displayed in the stands.

The MLB announced earlier this week that it will play a regular, 60-game season scheduled to begin July 23 or July 24 and run until the end of September. Clubs may allow fans to attend matches with the approval of the MLB and relevant local authorities; no approval has yet been given.

In their letter, the Giants cited “the continuing health risks associated with the pandemic” as the reason why their games will be played without the presence of fans.
