After the announcement was made to put on the wigs in the top of the fifth, fans cheered and rose to their feet; they also did the wave.

The headgear, a mix of red and white, was distributed before the game as part of a promotion. Though some fans discarded their wigs after the record was established, many sported them for the entire game.

Angel Stadium has already been the site of the Guinness world records for the most cowboy hats, wrestling masks and Snuggie blankets worn.
