About the Savannah Bananas

Savannah Bananas
(Savannah Bananas)

Called “The Greatest Show in Baseball” by ESPN, the Savannah Bananas are a world-famous exhibition baseball team based out of Savannah, Georgia. Instead of regular baseball, the team plays a slightly amended version of the game, called “Banana Ball.” Some of the rules of Banana Ball include:

  • A two-hour time limit for each game—whichever team is winning at the two-hour mark wins.
  • Any tie match is broken by a “one on one showdown” with each team fielding a limited number of players.
  • No bunting — any batter that attempts a bunt is ejected.
  • Batters are not allowed to step out of the batters box; any violation is an automatic strike.
  • Foul balls caught by fans are counted as outs.
  • Batters can attempt to “steal” first base in case of a wild pitch or passed ball at any time during the at-bat.

Banana Ball isn’t the only fun thing you’ll see at a Savannah Bananas game. Players perform choreographed dances every game and wear everything from yellow tuxedos to yellow kilts! No matter what, you’re always in for a treat at a Savannah Bananas game.
