A press release sent by the Angels media relations does not explain away the season ticket holders who will re-enter the stadium three and four times (that would be me) for extra masks without the commensurate heads to be wearing said masks when the record will be broken. I assume the Guinness adjudicator knows how to properly surmise the numbers. Okay, so here is the release...
ANGELS TO ATTEMPT WRESTLING MASK GUINNESS WORLD RECORD
ANAHEIM, CA - On Tuesday May 10, the Angels will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the "largest gathering of people wearing costume masks". All fans in attendance when the Angels play the White Sox this Tuesday at 7:05 PM will receive a complimentary Angels Wrestling Mask courtesy of Cacique U.S.A.
"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 compliment lasts seasons blanket event will be a unique and memorable experience for our fans, and another memory during our fiftieth anniversary."
During the game, an anticipated sellout crowd of over 40,000 will be prompted to wear their red Angels wrestling masks for ten consecutive minutes. After completion of the ten minutes, a Guinness World Records Adjudicator will officially certify the new record. Later in the game, Guinness World Records will hold a short ceremony to recognize the record breaking attempt.
This is the second Guinness World Record attempted by the Angels. The first was for the "largest gathering of people wearing blankets" in 2010. The current record for the largest gathering of people wearing costume masks is 250.
