Red Sox Fans to Toast for Guinness World Record at Fenway Park’s 100th Anniversary on Friday


Red Sox Fans to Toast for Guinness World Record at Fenway Park's 100th Anniversary on FridayPlenty of people have been figuratively raising a glass to Fenway Park's 100th anniversary as the April 20 milestone nears, but few have literally been toasting the occasion.

That will change this Friday. The Red Sox are inviting ticketholders to the 100th anniversary game to join in a stadium-wide salute to the park by raising thousands of glasses of Welch's juice.

Fans are asked to get to their seats by 2 p.m. so they can join in the ceremony and toast, which has a chance to break the Guinness World Record for the largest toast in one venue.

The current record-holder also belongs to a baseball crowd. On June 26, 2010, during a Tokyo Yakult Swallows game against the Hashin Tigers at Meiji Jingo Stadium in Tokyo, 27,126 people raised a glass together, according to the Guinness World Records website.

Fans could blow that record away at Fenway Park, which seats more than 37,000. The Red Sox face the Yankees at 3:05 p.m. Friday.
