“Myself and the entire Savannah Bananas organization are extremely proud of all five of our All-Star candidates. Their hard work and passion for the game of baseball is in direct correlation with their success on the field. Not only do the numbers speak for themselves, but their character is also seen in the way they represent themselves, their families, their respected universities and the Savannah Bananas within our community,” says head coach Sean West. “I’m not surprised at all of the success these young men are having. Congratulations to Jameson, Clint, Clay, Logan and Beau, as they had up to Fayetteville North Carolina and represent the Bananas in the Coastal Plains League All-Star game.”
