Sounds Like A Lot of Fun

USA Today - The opposite of normal: How the Savannah Bananas became best story in baseball

 

You think it is just like any other baseball team warm up UNTIL . . . . 

  • you look just outside the lines, other players practice dance routines and watch as the first-base coach works on a stunt that involves launching himself in the air, twisting over three chairs and a picnic table with a player laying on top, and, hopefully, sticking the landing.
  • Players dance and participate in promotions before, during and after the game. The Bananas have a pep band, their cheerleaders are either women over 65 the Banana-Nanas — or a heavyset guy who is in worse shape than the “Dad Bod” printed on his shirt suggests.
  • Part of the pre-game entertainment includes players leading the sold-out crowd — all games are sold out — in singing "Hey Baby." 

The Savannah Bananas are the best thing in baseball right now.  Attending your first Bananas game is like seeing Times Square for the first time. You don’t know where to look, and you’re sure to miss something.
