San Jose Earthquakes: Breaking ground and breaking records

6,256.

That's how many were on hand to lend a hand in San Jose yesterday as the Earthquakes celebrated (and executed) the groundbreaking of their new building.

The goal was to get at least 4,533 fans, players, coaches, owners and staff digging simultaneously to break the previous mark for the largest groundbreaking ceremony, and they smashed it. 

6,256. Well done.
