Amity High School Junior Jake Bronson announced that he is organizing a world record attempt for the most participants in a baseball throwing relay.
This event is taking place on Sunday, June 10, at the Amity High School Track. Check-in will start at 9 a.m. and will continue until 11 a.m. or until he reaches the 251 person minimum.
He and his fellow organizers also are collecting monetary donations for Pitch in for Baseball, a charity that donates baseball equipment to children who cannot afford this equipment to play baseball.
If you would like to help Jake and be a part of this event and possibly make it into the Guinness Book of World Records Mark your calendar and make your way down to the Amity Track, even if it’s just to witness the action — better if you participate, though.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, not enough people showed up to make the record. Jake will try again, perhaps in the Fall.
He worked so hard and filled out all of the paperwork, prepared the track and even had games and entertainment set up for participants. It just became evident that the required amount of people were not going to show up so he reluctantly closed up shop.
