The San Francisco Giants are doing their part to ensure their fans' presence will be felt when baseball returns next month, at least in print form.
In a letter sent to season-ticket holders Thursday, the Giants announced that games at Oracle Park will be played without fans due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the team will allow season-ticket holders to send in an image of themselves to be placed onto a cutout that will be displayed in the stands during home games.
In their letter, the Giants cited "the continued health risks related to the pandemic" as the reason their games will be played without fans in attendance.
MLB announced earlier this week that it will play a 60-game regular season that is expected to begin July 23 or July 24 and last until late September.
Clubs may permit fans to attend games with the approval of MLB and relevant local authorities, no approval has been given yet.
