HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – The Savannah Bananas baseball team played at Dunkin Park in Hartford on Monday night.
If you haven’t heard of the Savannah Bananas, they’ve been called the Harlem Globetrotters of baseball. They’re good at playing the game, but even better at making people laugh. They are also such a viral sensation on the internet that their entire world tour sold out this year.
Team members for the Bananas took over the East Hartford Dunkin on Main Street on Monday morning and served orders and treats to guests.
Guests also had the chance to take a picture with the Savannah Bananas mascot Split and one of the Hartford Yard Goats mascots.
Now, the Bananas did not play the Yard Goats. They play by their own rules, called Bananaball, so it’s tough for regular baseball teams to go against them. Half the Bananas suited up as “Party Animals” and essentially played against themselves.
Monday’s game, which kicked off at 7 p.m. at the Dunk, was completely sold out.
