ValleyCat fans to rock fake 'staches to break Guiness World Record tonight
TROY -- The Tri-City ValleyCats are attempting to break a world record during Saturday night's match-up against the Staten Island Yankees.
In honor of ValleyCats manager Ed Romero (and his trademark facial hair), the first 3,000 fans will be given fake mustaches so they can break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people wearing the false 'staches.
The current world record stands at 1,654 and was set in France earlier this summer.
The theme of the night is "This Day in History" as the 'Cats pay tribute to everything that occurred on August 24, including two very significant events that took place in and around the hometown of the ValleyCats.
On August 24, 1853, the original potato chips recipe was created in Saratoga Springs and in 1869, the first waffle iron was patented in Troy.
So go enjoy America's favorite pastime at Joe Bruno Stadium and become a part of history!
