Copperheads and fans set world record for simultaneously fidget spinners


The Southern Ohio Copperheads, fans, and friends set a world record on Saturday, July 8 at Ohio University's Bob Wren Stadium in Athens, Ohio.
 
The first 350 fans to show up to the game received an orange Copperheads fidget spinner for free. In order for the record to be set, 250 people needed to be in attendance and spinning their fidget spinners simultaneously.

A total of 377 people stood together, spinning on the field during the fifth inning of the game and set a new world record.

Before Saturday, there was no record for “most people spinning a fidget spinner simultaneously.” Thanks to Griffin Ward and Maddie Wyke, the directors of marketing for the Cheads, it is now a tough record to beat.
 
The players, staff, and fans united for one of the best games of the season.
