Minor League Baseball team in Georgia a viral sensation
ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - One of Georgia’s Minor League Baseball teams is turning the sport upside down.
The Savannah Bananas are messing with baseball’s rich traditions and it’s become a big hit with the fans.
Banana ball is a bit P.T. Barnum meets the Harlem Globetrotters at a dance party.
Team owner Jesse Cole tweaked the rules to amp up the action making up plenty of viral appeal.
Kyle Luigs’ groovin’ pre-pitch dance has viewed over 3 million times on TikTok.
Every game is a sell-out with a ripening waiting list 65,000 fans long.
For example, the Renners drove 11-1/2 hours from Ohio to see the team.
Perhaps most striking is that for two hours, fans eyes were not on their phones but on the field.
