The White Sox are looking set a record next month at U.S. Cellular Field.
On Sept. 13, the White Sox will attempt to break the Guinness World Records for most dogs at a sporting event. The attempt will be held in conjunction with the annual Bark at the Park event, presented by AvoDerm Natural Pet Foods, Nylabone and PetSmart.
In order for the White Sox to break the record, a minimum of 1,000 dogs must be present at the ballpark for the game.
Tickets for the game will be $20, which admits one human and one dog. Advance purchase of Bark at the Park tickets is required by Sept. 6.
