ARLINGTON, Texas -- Corey Hart would be proud of the Texas Rangers.

No, not Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Corey Hart.

Seventeen years after the Canadian singer released his hit song "Sunglasses at Night," the Rangers are making an '80s stylish attempt at getting into the Guinness Book of World Records on Tuesday night.

Fans attending Tuesday's game against the Houston Astros will be asked to don sunglasses at the end of the sixth inning and wear them for 10 minutes in an attempt to set a world record for the "Most People Wearing Sunglasses ... in the Dark."

As part of a giveaway, the Rangers will hand out 30,000 sunglasses to fans as they arrive at Rangers Ballpark on Tuesday, which happens to be the first official day of summer.

An official adjudicator from Guinness World Records will be onsite to immediately confirm the successful attempt.
