Most baseballs held in a baseball glove: 10
This is the story behind my Guinness World Record™ for the Most baseballs held in a baseball glove.
What is this crazy guy going to get up to next, I suppose you're
thinking. If you are, then I've got news for you. This was a simple
world record attempt and one I'd consider fit for even the most
conservative types. Yes, even they ought to be having fun; doing stuff!
Whether you're too conservative for the modern
world or far too outrageous to be contained by society, I think you
should all become as crazy as me. Are you keen? You could start with
this one. Its mild by any stretch of the imagination.
If you can pick up rocks in the garden, then I
bet you're intelligent enough to challenge me on this. All I did was
find a baseball supplier. In fact, that was the most difficult part of
getting prepared for this world record attempt. Certainly where I
looked, baseball equipment suppliers weren't common. But I hunted for
months until I'd found a company which was prepared to lend me the
items I needed. When they responded to my request positively, I could
have hugged every employee there that day. Why? Because I was one step
closer to attempting my next world record.
was due to make this attempt for TV. With a bag
of new baseballs, the borrowed baseball glove and a lot of other items
I'd be needing, I arrived to be greeted by the cameraman and
bystanders. As far as I was concerned this was a simple task. I rushed
up the steps to the venue's main hall, laid out my prepared items and
waited for the others to arrange themselves. And before I knew it,
everyone was seated, waiting.
I poured out the contents of my bag, had my helpers read the rules because they'd need to help me with admin afterwards, and it was time to begin. Glove on securely. First ball, then second and the next. This was as easy as could be. Really, folks, it was that easy. Even the cameraman thought he'd missed the action!
