A team out of Savannah, Ga. has been gaining traction for its interesting way of playing baseball. After many seasons with very few people in attendance the Savannah Bananas, a minor league baseball team, has been consistently selling out stadiums ever since the team changed owners in 2016.

The team had its fair share of ups and downs this season. Through all of the wins and losses this season, players grasped a better understanding of how to play with each other more effectively, according to the team’s head coach.
