During the August 24th contest against the Grand Prairie AirHogs, the Wichita Wingnuts will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest game of “Duck-Duck-Goose” ever played.
The world record attempt is one part of the Wingnuts “Ducked Dynasty” promotion. The organization is encouraging people to come dressed up to the ballgame in hunting apparel and camouflage. According to the Wingnuts’ Brian Turner, the first 500 fans in attendance will receive a duck call courtesy of the Midwest Huntfest.
“The current record for the largest game of “Duck-Duck-Goose” is 2,135,” Turner said. “We’re setting up to break that record and it’s going to a fun event for us.”
Turner, Jeremy Moch, and Drew Hays were apart of the group who thought up the record-breaking idea. Turner believes it will be a great way to bring different parts of the Kansas community together due to hunting being popular across the state.
“After the game, we will be giving numbered wristbands to everybody who is going to be participating in the “Duck-Duck-Goose” game,” Turner said. “We’ll take them out on the field and form the best circle as possible down the foul lines and around the outfield if we have enough people.”
The gates will open Saturday night at 6:05 central time with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 central time from Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.
