SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The Savannah Bananas have officially sold out their opening game, roughly five months ahead of time.
The home opener will be held May 31 against their new rivals – The Macon Bacon.
This is the team’s 33rd consecutive sellout.
The banana-bacon rivalry has received a lot of buzz since the Macon team announced their name last year.
Though the rivalry may have had a hand in the opening night sell out, it isn’t unusual for Bananas games to fill up quickly.
A word of advice from our WSAV Sports crew – buy your tickets now, if you haven’t already. Weekend games typically sell out before the season even starts.
