The Savannah Bananas are bringing their world-famous baseball circus to Jackie Robinson Ballpark on Friday, March 18, 2022. Affectionately referred to as ‘The Greatest Show in Baseball’ (ESPN SC Featured, August 2021) with an atmosphere that would ‘…make most MLB teams jealous (Sports Illustrated, June 2019), the Bananas have re-imagined what it means to experience a baseball game. After selling out back-to-back nights in Mobile, Alabama during the 2021 One City World Tour, the Bananas will take the show farther than ever before in 2022.
In addition to the cast of characters, dancers, performers, mascots, and musicians, the Bananas are bringing their own twist of baseball to Jackie Robinson Ballpark. Banana Ball is a fast-paced, action-packed style of baseball with rules that include no bunting, no walks, a two-hour time limit, fans catching foul balls for outs, batters stealing first base, and a one-on-one tiebreaker showdown at the end of the game. Banana Ball has been featured in stories on ESPN, Baseball America, Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, and more.
The Bananas will face off against their rival, the Party Animals. The rosters for both teams will be filled by independent players who have been scouted, tried out, and signed contracts for the 2022 Banana Ball World Tour. The Bananas have already signed two Bananas legends, Bill Leroy and Kyle Luigs. Leroy went viral on social media for introducing himself to bat and was called ‘The Future Face of Baseball’ by Barstool Sports. In addition to these players, the Bananas will have surprise player guests in each stop of the tour.
