Savannah Bananas vs. Party Animals
George Steinbrenner Field, home of Tampa Tarpons
Saturday, February 10th – 1 p.m.
Simply A Fan is excited to make Tampa the first stop to our own 2024 Banana Ball Tour! We have a limited number of tickets for our subscribers, followers and friends of St Pete’s own Mike LaRosa! The Bananas kickoff their 2024 season in Tampa with games on February, 8th, 9th and 10th at George Steinbrenner Field, home of the Tampa Tarpons, single-A affiliate of the New York Yankees. Our tickets are for the Saturday, February 10th game.
With the Bananas not releasing tickets via their lottery until 60 days out, we are fortunate as a group to secure ours early so you don’t have to wait! With over 1 million fans on the waitlist across the country, every Bananas game sells out. These can make great Christmas gifts for your kids, family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, church group and more.
Simply A Fan’s first adventure with the Bananas was June 2023 in Nashville when we had a massive record turnout of over 400 fans! It was our largest fanbase at a game in our five year history. Here is a link where you can read about that adventure: Potassium Level 436.
SEAT LOCATIONS & PRICING
*as of 2 p.m. on 12/1 this game is sold out
All tickets are General Admission. This is a great tradition for the Bananas that once the gates open, it’s first come, first serve to where you can or where you want – get there early! We are offering two pricing tiers described below. There are no extra taxes, fees or hidden charges with us, the price you see is the price you pay.
Tier 1 is $59 includes your game ticket (digital), a specially designed commemorative ticket, a nametag/lanyard and a Simply A Fan sticker/decal plus a chance to win a Banana Bundle pack!
Tier 2 is $139 includes everything from Tier 1 plus an official yellow Banana Ball and an official Bananas jersey with your choice of yellow or white. (FYI – adult jersey sizes are available small to 2XL; kids jersey sizes are only available in small or medium.) If you choose this option, I will be in touch regarding sizes!
*Note that you can mix and match tiers all in the same transaction. Want to get the kids the banana ball and jersey yet parents are good to keep it simple? Knock yourself out!
Once our 200 tickets for this Tampa game are sold out, we will have a live drawing on Facebook using a randomizer to pull the winner. For every ticket you purchase, you will be given that many chances to win. The Bananas Bundle Pack will include the following items:
• a yellow Banana ball
• an official Bananas jersey, your choice of white or yellow
• a three pack of Banana decal stickers
• one of Jesse Cole’s three books
• a team set of Bananas baseball cards
• a Split the mascot bobblehead
This all adds up to nearly a $200 value that someone will get for free just for buying tickets with Simply A Fan!
Knowing that some of you may want to bring your baseball team or family group, there is a max limit of 20 tickets per transaction. If your situation warrants more, please contact me. Tickets are digital and will be transferred a month before the game. In an effort to reduce scalping on the secondary market (StubHub, SeatGeek, Vivid Seats) the tickets will not be activated by the Bananas until 48 hours before the game. When buying tickets please read our Absolute No Resale policy in the Terms and Conditions, per our agreement with the Bananas.

Who Are The Savannah Bananas
That is a great question! In recent years the Savannah Bananas have become a world-wide sensation known for their unique and entertaining style of play called Banana Ball. Based out of Savannah, Georgia, Banana Ball is a fast-paced and fan-focused version of baseball that aims to create a fun and interactive experience for spectators.
The game features various rules, such as no bunting, no walks, and a time limit on innings, all which keeps the game moving quickly. Check out the rules of Banana Ball here! The Bananas also incorporate exciting entertainment elements into their games, including dancing players and umpires, hilarious on-field promotions, and lively music.
