New York Yankees legend Bernie Williams has led a successful record attempt for the Most people blowing a chewing gum bubble simultaneously at an all-stars baseball game.
Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB) fans at ARM & HAMMER Park in Trenton, New Jersey (US) helped Boehringer Ingelheim set the record as part of its "Breathless™ Blowout" campaign.
MiLB partnered with Boehringer Ingelheim for the campaign with the record attempt being the pinnacle of the season-long drive that has raised awareness for the rare lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
Williams, a former Yankee, five-time All Star and IPF spokesperson, directed 881 people on 11 July to blow a bubble simultaneously and made the event an exciting experience for families, kids, and baseball fans.
His father, Bernabé, passed away from IPF in 2001.
In order to surpass the minimum, hundreds of Minor League Baseball fans and event participants had to all chew a piece of gum for at least one minute and then blow a bubble that would remain inflated for at least 30 seconds.
