Earlier this summer, a world record was set in France for the largest gathering of people wearing fake mustaches. Well, this Saturday at the ValleyCats game, that’s all about to change.
In honor of ValleyCats manager Ed Romero, the Tri-City ValleyCats will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people wearing false mustaches this Saturday, August 24 at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium in Troy, NY.
The best part is, the mustaches will be handed out free to the first 3,000 fans through the gate so you won’t have to go hunting down your own ‘stache. At some point during the game, The ValleyCats will ask for all who received the mustaches to put them on. The current French record stands at 1,654 fake mustaches. We can do better than that!
The theme of the night is “This Day in History” as the ‘Cats pay tribute to everything that occurred on the date August 24, including two very significant events that took place in and around the Capital Region.
On August 24, 1853, the original potato chips recipe was created in Saratoga Springs, NY, and in 1869, the first waffle iron was patented in Troy, NY.
At the game this Saturday, the ValleyCats, Class A affiliate of the Houston Astros, host the Staten Island Yankees, Class-A affiliate of the New York Yankees. The game begins at 7pm.
