The White Sox played the Cleveland Indians earlier this week, winning the game 8-1.
So what makes this a Critterfiles?
On that day, Sept 13, the Sox claimed a bigger title, setting a Guinness World Record for most dogs attending a sporting event during their annual Bark at the Park night.
Reviewed by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ adjudicator Michael Empric, the Sox claimed the title by hosting 1,122 dogs at U.S. Cellular Field. The pooches sat, stayed, sniffed and occasionally barked in designated areas in the outfield stands.
The Chicago White Sox had a clock in the outfield that counted the ten minutes down and they announced in the sixth inning that the record had been reached. Infielder Tyler Saladino, who bought his dog Luna, to the stadium that night, told the Chicago Tribune that he could hear the dogs throughout the game.
“It was just funny hearing them yelling, like they didn’t know what was going on,” Saladino said. “They were just yelling back and forth at each other. That was a fun game though.”
A paid crowd of 15,588 humans joined the dogs, including second baseman Tyler Saladino’s female husky, Luna.
“She had a blast,” Saladino said. “I hope she didn’t cause too much trouble.”
