Angels News: Los Angeles Angels Set A Guinness World Record Once Again

For the sixth-straight season, the Los Angeles Angels have set a Guinness World Record, this time with sombreros.

Here's FOX Sports West's Rahshaun Haylock with the report:

Tuesday, which happened to be Cinco de Mayo, the club completed its attempt of having the largest gathering of people wearing sombreros. The unofficial total of people wearing sombreros inside Angel Stadium for the record was 25,111. Guinness will report to the Angels an official count "a few weeks later," according to a team official.

There was a Guinness official on hand to oversee the attempt, and a club representative was presented a certificate of completion afterward.

The announcement came between the fourth and fifth innings that the club was going after another world record. In order for it to be official, everyone needed to wear their sombrero, which was handed out to each fan upon entry into Angel Stadium, at the same time for at least five minutes.

The sombrero is the latest wearable item to aid the Angels in their Guinness World Record quest, a list which contains snuggies, wrestling masks, cowboy hats, wigs and Santa hats.
