The Bananas Hosted Live Draft Extravaganza to Reveal 2024 World Tour

The Savannah Banana have done it again!  Fresh off their visit to Cooperstown to close out the 2023 Tour, they hosted a Live NFL style Draft event to reveal their 2024 World Tour schedule.

A few major highlights of the event include the reveal of a new, Bananaball rival to play against the Bananas and Party Animals – the Firefighters!

The Bananas 2024 tour also includes games at six MLB ballparks including Minute Maid Park (Houston), Fenway (Boston), Nationals Park (DC), Progressive Field (Cleveland), Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia) and LoanDepot Park (Miami).  Following the season tour ending game in Miami, they’ll set sail on a four day “Bananaland at Sea” Cruise to the Bahamas.

Yes, Jesse Cole and company have done it again.  Legends on Deck looks to continue coverage of our friends in Bananaland heading into 2024 and beyond.  It’s been quite an adventure to witness their rise to prominence over the past couple years.
