ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Banana Ball is coming to Albuquerque. The Isotopes announced that the popular entertainment baseball team, the Savannah Bananas, will play 2 games at Isotopes Park on April 20-21.
“Taking the Bananas to Albuquerque has been something we’ve heard constantly from our fans over the years,” said Bananas’ owner Jesse Cole. “We are fired up to bring an unforgettable show to Isotopes Park next spring.”
Unlike regular baseball, the Bananas play a modified version of the game called “banana ball.” The Bananas play against the “Party Animals” and the game is focused on fan engagement and entertainment.
Former Sandia High School and UNM standout pitcher Drew Gillespie currently plays for the Party Animals and usually makes the trip with the team.
Tickets will be a lottery-based drawing. According to the Savannah Bananas Twitter, fans have until Dec. 1, 2023, to join the list. A tweet from the team: “Join the Ticket Lottery List before it closes on December 1, 2023. Joining the list doesn’t guarantee the opportunity to buy tickets. A random drawing will take place about 2 months before the event. If you’re drawn, you’ll have an opportunity to purchase up to four tickets! Joining later does not affect your opportunity to be drawn for the lottery as it is random!”
