There's plenty of stuff we're getting used to with this year's altered and unique MLB season, and the cardboard cutouts and stuffed animals littered throughout the stands are certainly one of them.

However, one thing the new inhabitants of the stands are doing that we've become accustomed to real fans doing over the years is getting hit by foul balls. And this poor stuffed animal learned that the hard way at the hands of a foul ball rocket off the bat of Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Ketel Marte.

Ouch! Right to the head there. Thankfully there are stuffed bears and cardboard cutouts in the stands and not people for this one, especially with the way this bear's entire body jolted and fired back after taking that ball to the face.

While, of course, we'd all prefer to see those live human faces in the crowds once again, at least we can appreciate this for how silly it looked.
