Oakland A’s fans are taking a page out of the Toronto Raptors fan book — yes, there’s such a thing — and resorting to the ex-girlfriend cutout head in an effort to distract an opposing player.
CSN Bay Area’s Casey Pratt shared a photo prior to ALDS Game 5 between the A’s and Detroit Tigers on Thursday that shows a few A’s fans holding a cutout of Kate Upton:

CBS Sports’ Scott Miller also shared a photo of the fans behind the Tigers dugout:

All last year, Upton was rumored to be the girlfriend of Tigers ace Justin Verlander. Neither party confirmed nor denied the relationship, but the two were in a commercial together and photographed together during the season. Verlander’s grandfather appeared to confirm the relationship, however. But in February, Upton said in an interview that she is single, leading everyone to believe they are no longer together.
As mentioned earlier, the best example of this came almost two years ago when Raptors fans taunted Kris Humphries with Kim Kardashian cutouts shortly the two split following their grueling 72-day marriage.
