That’s A Keeper! Oakland A’s “Virtual Fan Plan” Comes With An Added Bonus For Those “In Attendance”!

Not that long ago, the San Francisco Giants became the first MLB team that came up with the idea of using cardboard cutouts in place of fans during the pandemic.

The Oakland A’s saw that and raised the stakes.

The team adopted that same policy, however, if a cardboard cutout placed in the designated “Foul Ball Zone” is plunked by a foul ball, the team will send a souvenir baseball to the fan.


Coliseum Cutouts will be authenticated and recognized by MLB as official “virtual fans,” and will be placed in seats through the ballpark for the 2020 regular season. If a Foul Ball Zone cutout gets hit with a foul ball, the A’s will send a ball to the fan on the cutout,” the announcement reads.

Now that is a super neat idea!

It’s all the fun of catching a foul ball without the off-chance of getting beamed by it and spilling my nachos.

Fans with A’s’ All Access passes can submit photos for $49, while those without an access pass can do so for $89. And if you want to grab a seat in the coveted “Foul Ball Zone,” it will cost you $129.

As an added bonus, all fans who sign up will also receive a pair of tickets to the A’s first home exhibition game at the Coliseum in 2021. So cutout spaces will be limited.

The team has also announced that all proceeds from the plan will go to local charities.
