The Chicago White Sox are going for a Guinness Book record at tonight’s 7:10 p.m. game against the Cleveland Indians.
This time it’s not about RBIs, strikeouts or home runs. It’s all gone to the dogs!
Tonight, the Chicago White Sox is packing U.S. Cellular Field with dogs in it’s annual Bark at the Park event in attempts to achieve the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for Most dogs attending a sporting event.
There are specific instructions that fans are requested to follow, which are dire to the achievement of the record.
Below are the instructions for fans of two and four legs.
- Gates to the ballpark will open at 5:40 p.m. Fans that registered early enough for the Pregame Parade have received their Parade Passes and should arrive at Gate 1 by 6 p.m. to ensure your spot. The parade will begin sometime before 6:30 p.m.
- Fans without a Parade Pass should arrive at Gate 1 by 6:30 p.m. to ensure you and your dog make it through security before first pitch scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
- Please ensure your dog’s ticket is scanned as you enter the ballpark at Gate 1, so your dog counts towards our Guinness World Record attempt.
- In order to achieve this record, all dogs must be in their seats for a designated ten minutes, so please be in the Outfield seating bowl no later than the end of the 2nd inning as the ten minute clock will start at the top of the 3rd inning. Any dogs that leave the seating bowl or are in the concourse during this designated ten minutes will count AGAINST our efforts to achieve this record.
- A countdown clock will be featured on the right field videoboard.
- During the ten minute countdown, we will be taking a “group photo.” If we are able to achieve the record, we will send you a digital copy of this photo commemorating your part in this historic event!
