Since its founding in 2016, The Savannah Bananas have drawn in years of sold-out crowds and over 2.5 million followers on TikTok — nearly half of the number of followers the official MLB channel has.

The Bananas consist of two teams, The Coastal Plain League team which is college-level summer baseball, and the professional Premiere team which focuses on shorter games known as “banana ball.”

Thanks to the owner and founder Jesse Cole, both teams share the same level of energy that has garnered them viral popularity. Their energy is shown through their constant uploads, like this one where the team practiced their “jack sparrow run” in the middle of a game.
