Must Watch: Hockey on the Baseball Diamond — Savannah Bananas Style

Savannah Bananas
Savannah Bananas

With the Stanley Cup Playoffs providing us with incredible drama and fantastic hockey — and great TV ratings — the undisputed greatest show on turf has come on board. The Savannah Bananas put on the gear and got after it!

With a goalie behind the plate and an attempted wrister for a ball, the Bananas made it work — as they always do. And the catcher/goalie made one helluva play in full gear (some of which might have been on the wrong legs, but who’s gonna tell them to do it differently?).
