Firefighters are Coming!

A third team has been created to play Banana Ball. Check out the introduction of the Firefighters.

Call 911!  The Firefighters are coming to a ballpark near you.

As we touched on in our recent High Five Game Review of the Savannah Bananas, the touring Banana Ball group is expanding.  Bananas remain, the Party Animals start to get their own tour and now a new Franchise has been announced, the Firefighters.

The Firefighters are the third team to join the Banana Ball World Tour. The team will be made up of professional players from all over the country. The new kids on the block will have their Opening Game on May 30th in Savannah. They will make their Major League Stadium debut at Nationals Park, in Washington D.C. on July 13th.

Sound the alarm because things are heating up in 2024.  (See the Firefighters on IG)

The Firefighters branding was created by Dan Simon of the Louisville-based design firm Studio Simon, which also created the Savannah Bananas identity. The primary logo features a burly, mustachioed firefighter wielding a pair of baseball bats as axes. The cap logo is a letter F created by an axe and a yellow baseball with a trail of flames. The prominence of the color yellow in this brand, according to Simon, is meant to evoke the reflective gear worn by firefighters.

The Bananas and Party Animals have distinct personalities as teams, and it remains to be seen how this new team will be seen. After the astounding success of the Bananas, Simon has an idea that wherever it ends up will be good.
