Starved for sports? You’re not alone! Because of covid-19, professional sports leagues have delayed starting their seasons. In South Korea, while pro baseball is being played, spectators aren’t allowed to attend. Thankfully, Pokémon plushies are.

At Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium, home of the Hanwha Eagles, the stands behind home plate are being filled with cute character plush toys of Pikachu, Snorlax, and Dragonite, among others.

The plushies started watching the games late last month.

Though, at that time, they were practicing stricter social distancing.

As this image on The Qoo shows, it appears that the characters don’t have reserved seats and sit in different spots depending on the game. Good, because I was really worried that SpongeBob had better seats than Pikachu.

Other baseball stadiums have been filled with cardboard cutouts, fans printed on banners, and inflatable people.
