The Los Angeles Angels will try to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest gathering of people wearing cowboy hats with a fan promotion scheduled for June 2.
Prior to the 7:05 p.m. PST game, fans will be given a Angels cowboy hat. The anticipated crowd of more than 40,000 will be asked to wear it for 10 consecutive minutes at the start of the fifth inning.
A Guinness adjudicator will be in attendance to certify the new record. The current mark is 500 people.
The Angels are linked to cowboy hats via their original owner, Gene Autry, who was known as "The Signing Cowboy."
This will be the third world-record promotion by the Angeles. In 2010, they had the largest gathering of people wearing blankets and last season they had the largest gathering of people wearing masks.
