Oakland A's fans can buy cardboard cutout of themselves to put in stadium at games

While fans are not allowed to attend any MLB games in the shortened 2020 season, the Oakland Athletics came up with a brilliant way to "bring in" fans.

The team unveiled its "Coliseum Cutouts" program, where A's fans will get a chance to display the cardboard cutout of themselves during games.

The team's staff will try to fill the stands with the cutouts. Prices range from $49 to $129 for each cutout. If a cutout in the program's foul ball zone gets hit with a foul ball, the A's will send the ball to that fan.

Proceeds from this program will benefit the team's charity partners.

With every purchase of a cutout, the fan will also receive two complimentary tickets to the A's first exhibition game at the Coliseum during the 2021 season.
