  • With a name like Savannah Bananas, you know you're in for a good time! Gotta love a stadium that's been around since 1927. Could use a little updating, as long as you don't lose that "old school" vibe...  more »

  • 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.
  • Great small town historic baseball field. Currently home of the Savannah Bananas. Fantastic time for the whole family
  • Amazing baseball and family fun.
  • They do a fantastic job of making every bananas game fun for everybody who comes even if you aren't a baseball fan.
