So what do you think the record is for most people raising a glass of Welch's Sparkling Grape Juice Cocktail in a single venue at one time? Five? Six? Thirteen?
Well, it turns out it's 27,126. (Honest. It was set in 2010 at Meiji Jingu Stadium in Tokyo at a Tokyo Yajult Swallows-Hanshin Tigers baseball game.) That's well within the grasp of our friends over at Yawkey Way, so on April 20 -- the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park -- they're going to try to set a new record. The Red Sox and the folks at Welch's are going to summon representatives from Guinness World Records and, we assume, hand out a glass of Welch's Sparking Grape Juice Cocktail to everyone in the anticipated sellout crowd of 37,493 (or thereabouts, depending on standees). And at some point, they'll ask all 37,493 to raise that glass in celebration . . . and for posterity.
Hey, what better way to commemorate 100 years at the corner of Brookline Avenue and Yawkey Way (nee Jersey Street)?
