Savannah Bananas bringing sold out games back to Indy
Attention sports fans and "potassium enthusiasts:" The wackiest baseball team in America is coming back to Victory Field next summer — this time for three consecutive dates in June.
Why it matters: The Savannah Bananas' unique blend of humor, dance and athleticism has made the team a touring sensation.
- This past summer's two sold-out games were the biggest crowds in Savannah Bananas history.
How it works: The Georgia-based team is baseball's answer to the Harlem Globetrotters, with the yellow-clad Bananas typically facing their rival Savannah Party Animals in pink.
- They play under Banana Ball rules, which dictate a two-hour time limit, outlaw bunting and cause a batter to be out if a fan catches a foul ball on the fly.
The intrigue: You never know what you'll see at a Bananas game.
- There might be ping pong in the outfield, a backflip catch, a batter on stilts or a twerking umpire.
Details: Fans must join the ticket lottery list by Dec. 1 for an opportunity to buy tickets, with those chosen alerted about two months before the games.
- Three games are scheduled for June 27-29, 2024.
Of note: Indians season ticket and mini-plan holders will receive presale access to Bananas tickets.
