With 1,122 Dogs In The Audience, The Chicago White Sox Now Hold This World RecordAshley Maisano
Like many MLB teams do, the Chicago White Sox had their annual Bark at the Park event at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, Illinois, on Tuesday, September 13. They knew the addition of dogs would make any baseball game better, but little did they know they’d be setting a world record!
In order to break the Guinness World Record, they needed at least 1,000 dogs to sit in their seats in the outfield stands for 10 minutes during the third inning. Not only did they achieve this feat, they surpassed it! With 1,122 dogs in the audience, the Chicago White Sox now hold the record for most dogs at a sporting event!
Many dogs in attendance were sporting their love for baseball and the White Sox. Donning everything from Sox jerseys and shirts to mini helmets, these pups were the cutest baseball fans ever!
One of the Sox players, Tyler Saladino, even brought his own dog, Luna, to the game! “…she knows something’s going on because she was getting treats yesterday on the field, and treats today on the field. She’s loving life right now,” Saladino told US Magazine.
The team even got an award from the Guinness Book of World Records, making it official. Not only did they set the record, but the White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 8-1 to top off an already awesome day!
