You just have to wonder how people come up with marketing ideas to put fans in the stands at a baseball game right?
It’s a masked ball at Angel Stadium tonight, as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the “largest gathering of people wearing costume masks,” as all fans will be presented with a complimentary Angels Wrestling Mask and asked to wear it for ten minutes.
“We are constantly looking for ways to connect and engage with our great fan base,” said Angels Vice President of Sales & Marketing Robert Alvarado. “Setting another world record to compliment last season’s blanket event will be a unique and memorable experience for our fans, and another memory during our 50th anniversary.”
If I’m a baseball player seeing this, I’m wondering how in the world 40,000 can be instructed to wear this joke for 10 minutes anywhere.
All in the name of a record? Just goes to show there’s one (or 40,000) born every minute.
