Most people wearing cowboy hats: Angels fans set world record
ANAHEIM, CA, USA -- The Los Angeles Angels gave fans Yokohama-branded black cowboy hats during a home game against the Texas Rangers; during the fifth inning, 39,013 fans received a complimentary black cowboy hat with an Angels logo on the front; they wore the hat for at least 10 minutes,
setting the world record for the Most people wearing cowboy hats,
according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.
The Guinness world record for the most people whistling simultaneously at a single venue is 329 in an event organised by the TMD Corporation (Japan).
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most people wearing costume masks: 27,080 - organised by Angels Baseball (USA) at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA.
"Mission accomplished," said Shawn Denlein, YTC director of sales, Consumer Products.
"Fun promotions like this are one of the reasons we are involved in sports marketing. They create excitement with fans while helping drive consumer traffic to our dealers. I'd like to tip my hat to the Angels on creating this entertaining promotion.
"Not only did it break a Guinness world record, but it's a clever nod to the Angels' original owner, Gene 'The Singing Cowboy' Autry."
Setting World Records is something the Angels have tried to do for a few years.
They have set records in the past for "largest gathering of people wearing blankets" in 2010 and "largest gathering of people wearing masks" in 2011.
"These record attempts are becoming an annual event for us," Angels vice president of sales and marketing Robert Alvarado said in a statement.
"By attempting our third world record to complement the last two seasons' events, we will deliver a unique and memorable experience that our fans have come to expect."
Whether fans wore the hat on their head, or used it as a popcorn and beverage transporter, being a part of a world record is something most fans will remember.
