Giants will display cardboard cutouts of their fans at Oracle Park this season

  Giants will display cardboard cutouts of their fans at Oracle Park this season The Giants sent a letter to their season-ticket holders on Thursday explaining that their games at Oracle Park will be played out fans. The franchise then asked the season ticket holders to send in images of themselves that will be placed on cardboard cutouts in front of their usual seats in the stands. The bullpens are being relocated at Oracle Park.

5 Bold Predictions for the 2020 MLB Season .
A 60-game Major League Baseball season is officially slated in the calendar to begin on July 23 or 24 this year. It is a bit of an understatement to say this season would be unique.
