While Angels manager Mike Scioscia became just the 56th manager to reach 1,000 wins and just the 23rd to do so with one team Sunday, the Angels on Tuesday will attempt to break the Guinness world record for the "largest gathering of people wearing costume masks."
All fans in attendance for Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox will receive a complimentary Angels wrestling mask courtesy of Cacique U.S.A.
Marketing associate John Rozak came up with the idea of the wrestling masks a few years ago, and was finally able to get the idea accomplished this season.
"We are constantly looking for ways to connect and engage with our great fan base," vice president of sales & marketing, Robert Alvarado said. "Setting another world record to complement last season's blanket event will be a unique and memorable experience for our fans, and another memory during our 50th anniversary."
Fans will be prompted to wear their red Angels wrestling masks for 10 consecutive minutes. After completion, a Guinness World Records adjudicator will officially certify the record, and later in the game, Guinness World Records will hold a short ceremony to recognize the record-breaking attempt.
The second Guinness world record attempt by the organization, the Angels first tried to set the record for the "largest gathering of people wearing blankets" in 2010. The current record for the largest gathering of people wearing costume masks is 250.
