Dodgers use cardboard cutout fans, including Tommy Lasorda, for Opening Day

The Los Angeles Dodgers held their Opening Day game against the visiting San Francisco Giants on Thursday night in front of 4500 cardboard cutout fans.

Many of the images were Dodgers fans who submitted images of themselves, but a few familiar faces were in the "crowd", including former manager (and Hall of Famer) Tommy Lasorda.

Time will tell whether MLB teams will embrace the cardboard cutout fans or not, as only certain teams will have them in the stands for their home games. However, since the Dodgers started the season on the right foot by beating the Giants 8-1, the cardboard fans will probably be around for a while.
