CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- One fan will have a big presence at Guaranteed Rate Field as the White Sox host the Minnesota Twins to start the COVID-shortened season, even though fans aren't allowed in the ballpark.

White Sox Charities sold 1,500 cutouts on which fans could put their pictures and have them placed in seats at the ballpark. The cost was $49 each.

Paul Garrett of Oak Brook found out there were 100 left, so he bought all of them.


He said he would have put other family members on them, but his wife thought it would be better if all of the cutouts showed him yelling. The cutouts are near the visitors' dugout, and idea was to rattle the Twins, he said.

The White Sox had put a cap on how many cutouts fans could buy. But the team made an exception for Garrett because of his long-time support of White Sox Charities.
