    A's fans can virtually attend games, receive foul balls through the mail

    https://www.mlb.com/press-release/pr...oliseum-cutout

    Starting at $49, fans can have their likeness placed on a board and put into a seat for the duration of the 2020 season. Fans are encouraged to send in a photo of themselves wearing A's gear for the cutout.

    At the $129 price, cutouts will be situated in the "Foul Ball Zone" and, if a ball hits a cutout in that area, "the A's will send a ball to the fan on the cutout."
    Just like Korean baseball. Imagine if this was during the Sosa and McGwire chase to Maris? This would be unfair. Lol

    That's creative

    does it have to be A's gear, not sure where the "encouraged" part comes into play there

    I wonder if they will allow people to have a fake face tat or wearing a t shirt that advertises their small business or website, in hopes they'll get put in a high foul ball zone down the first base line

    if we are minority, are we more likely to get balls due to affirmative action?

    Since they are in Oakland, the black pictures get front row seats in field section. White posters get the nose bleed sections

    Let's all chip in $2.50 and get JJ in the Foul Ball Zone.

    Or we can all chip in $5 and lets's get his boy Jeffery sitting next to him.
