Look: KBO’s Hanwha Eagles using stuffed animals to fill empty seats
In places where sports have resumed, they’ve all done so without fans. That has left some teams trying to figure out what they can do to dress up the background a bit instead of simply putting a bunch of empty seats on TV.
The KBO’s Hanwha Eagles appear to have the best idea. Those tuning in to watch their game against NC Dinos noted the stands packed with various stuffed animals.

The team has been doing this for home games for over a week now, and appears to have no plans to stop.

The reality is sports look pretty strange right now. Sometimes that manifests itself in a weird way. This, however, is a lot more fun.
