MLB Teams Selling Personalized Fan Cardboard Cutouts
The novel coronavirus pandemic has pushed back the Major League Baseball season months but after a long wait and of course, a struggle between the owners and the players association Opening Day is finally here.
Baseball players and fans alike have reason to rejoice. The players are happy to be getting back to playing the game they've dedicated their entire lives to get to the professional level. The fans are excited for LIVE sports as baseball will be the first of the three major sports to play since the pandemic hit in mid-March.
Now, there won't be any fans in the stands for any baseball action in 2020 which hurts the bottom line for owners who live off the revenue generated by fans.
