Take me out to the ball game! It’s baseball season and that means a chance to catch the Savannah Bananas at home during their 2022 season. If you’ve never attended a live baseball game, you’re in for a treat, especially with the Bananas on the field!
The Savannah Bananas are part of the Coastal Plain League, a wood-bat summer baseball league featuring college players from around the nation. More than that, team members are recruited for their ability to play ball as well as entertain, and entertain they do.
There are choreographed dances every game and each season sees a variety of unique and highly imaginative promotions. You’ll see players break dancing, celebrating a run with a Bananaland leap, the entire team in kilts, and much more.
It’s not all zany antics, however. The team is here to make the game fun AND to win. Attendees can expect lots of silly fun but also some spectacular baseball. Is it any wonder they have a sellout streak?
The 4,000 seat stadium was originally built in 1926 and has has hosted such legendary players as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Hank Aaron, Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson, and Mickey Mantle. Grayson Stadium also has the distinction of being the first ever ad-free ballpark! Can you even imagine that?
