Discover Optim Orthopedics: Savannah Bananas
HISTORIC GRAYSON STADIUM - SAVANNAH, GEORGIA
The Savannah Bananas are not your typical baseball team. They are a viral sensation, known for their high-energy performances both on and off the field. Led by owner Jesse Cole and featuring a team of talented collegiate players, the Bananas have become a must-see for sports fans across the country.
While the Bananas are members of the Coastal Plains League, a collegiate wood bat league, they are perhaps best known for their Banana Ball games. These games feature alternate rules and a different roster and are designed to be faster and more fan-friendly than traditional baseball. Players are not allowed to step out of the box during their at-bat, and bunting is prohibited. Instead, the focus is on the things that fans love about baseball: high-scoring games, exciting plays, and a lively atmosphere.
Jesse Cole is the driving force behind the Bananas' success. He is known for his rapid-fire patter and his tireless commitment to making baseball fun. He wakes up early every morning to write down new ideas, and he is constantly experimenting with new ways to engage fans and create unforgettable moments on the field.
Whether you're a die-hard baseball fan or simply looking for a fun and entertaining sports experience, the Savannah Bananas are a team you won't want to miss. From their viral TikTok dances to their fast-paced Banana Ball games, the Bananas are a true one-of-a-kind team that is changing the way we think about baseball.
“We can no longer be a baseball team. We have to be a circus, and maybe a baseball game will break out.”
