Ever thought you’d see college baseball players perform synchronized dances mid-game? We don’t think so.
Here’s everything we know Savannah Bananas
Bananas’ personal goal is to break all the unwritten rules and etiquette patterns of baseball. Instead of having their pitcher change his serve to throw off the batter, managers coordinate TikTok dances for teams to perform mid-game. They wear trendy clothing such as skirts and sweaters instead of traditional uniforms. The base of their home, Grayson Stadium, is yellow instead of white. Their name is Banana. Is there anything weirder than this?
Now, the Savannah Bananas organization is not one, but two teams. First of all, the original university team participated in the Coastal Plains League.Then there are professional teams playing exhibition matches on an out-of-league circuit, something like Harlem Globetrotter do basketball.
Bananas took a bold advocacy strategy and it paid off. They have sold more home games than any other Coastal Plains league team since their inception in 2016. They have amassed over 2.5 million TikTok followers thanks to their fashion videos and dances. Add in their 86,300 Twitter followers, 424,000 Instagram followers and 41,600 YouTube subscribers, and you’ve got almost 3 million followers on the internet. That’s almost as much as some MLB teams.
Here’s the best part: ESPN+ airs the banana game on national television. They have done this several times. In 2021, they aired several games in April and May. This season, they’re back on the scene, offering subscribers live and on-demand games.
