Baseball has long been one of the United States’ favorite pastimes. But the Savannah Bananas have reinvented the game and brought new energy to baseball.
Jesse Cole started from the bottom
Jesse Cole started the Savannah Bananas as a fan-first team, focusing on entertaining his spectators above all else. He did this using strategies that he had tested as the General Manager of the Gastonia Grizzlies.
Turning debt into success
Entrepreneur and Investor Joe Pompliano shared a Tweet stating that the Bananas had gone from $1.8 million in debt to earning $200,000 per home game. This was all because of Cole’s approach to the game.
The taste of success
The Savannah Bananas are now one of the most popular teams in the United States. Their mid-game dances have drawn them to social media fame as well as the tune of more than 5 million followers.
