MLB: A familiar face to Cubs fans seen in the crowd…

With no spectators, it’s pretty quiet in MLB ballparks. However, it must be admitted; The idea of ​​filling the empty stands with cards with the image of the supporters was a good one in the end.

Do you agree?

For my part, I much prefer this option to virtual viewers generated through technology.

Real fan pictures, it’s more humane. Better yet, it’s friendly to comedic scenes.

This week, during a game between the Seattle Mariners and the Oakland Athletics, a familiar face stood out inside T-Mobile Park. Among the inanimate crowd was… Steve Bartman.

I would have preferred to see this photo at the Marlins (or Cubs!) home, but it was still well done.

Bartman is famous for catching a ball that could have been caught by Moises Alou, in Game 6 of the 2003 Major League Baseball Championship Series. The Cubs then led the series 3-2 against the Marlins and 3-0 in this game, in the eighth inning. Following this error, the Florida team scored eight unanswered points en route to an 8-3 victory. The next day, Chicago suffered elimination and the curse continued.

The best fan letters

The fact that a seat holder is free to provide the photo of their choice, on the condition that they respect the instructions, adds a lot of diversity in the stands. Also, we have noticed that fans don’t hesitate to use humor and creativity to get noticed.

These are some of the cardboard spectators (human, canine or feline…) that have attracted the most attention since the resumption of activities.
