  • The baseball team in the city and what the minor leagues of the United States. It's worth going for the experience of seeing a sport little widespread in Brazil and all over the party mood showered a lot of food and drinks.

  • Savannah Bananas are an amazing team. The owners and players put on a great show for a great deal. Single game tickets $15 with all you can eat and drink concessions. Now you see why the Champion Bananas sell out!
  • This a great place spend time with friends and family.and the Bananas won the game tonight
  • The Savannah Bananas have replaced the Sand Gnats as Savannah's main sports attraction housed in Grayson Stadium. Compared to the old Sand Gnats games, the Bananas pull a much larger crowd! If you're General Admission, you'll need to come early to find seats for a group of 4 or more. The games have also gotten more expensive - we still think they are reasonably priced, but definitely a steep increase from the $1 games and $1 beers the Gnats used to boast. Admission is now $9 and beers are around $5, with $3-5 for hotdogs or hamburgers and other snacks. They do still offer craft beer, wine, and some mixed drinks which is nice!
  • Great great great...Savannah bananas were a fun time.
  • This place is just plain fun. There are multiple general admission areas for seating. Make sure you get there early to get a seat, especially if you have a larger group of people wanting to sit next to each other. Even better, spend the extra money and get a reserved seat. All seats here are good views. The stadium is small enough to accommodate that.
