People can find ways to gather support and morale boost. For the case of The Hanwha Eagles, a South Korean professional baseball team, the way was through technology. In a recent game, the team filled 3 rows of robots to cheer for them. Sora News 24 also adds a detail that makes the whole act interesting, and quite sad:
It bears mentioning that the Eagles aren’t exactly doing well — “the team has finished last in their league four out of the last five years,” according to CTV, “so the seats taken up by the fanbots might be otherwise empty.”
The Fanbots are soulless machines, but they sure are enthusiastic.
