Baseball teams put ads everywhere. One summer league team is ditching them entirely.

“ The owner of the Savannah Bananas, a summer collegiate baseball team in Georgia, brags that he owns seven yellow tuxedos. The team’s players dance in front of the dugout between innings. Once a summer, they take the field in kilts.
Now the Bananas are about to try something funky with their finances. They’re ditching advertisements at historic William L. Grayson Stadium.
No more signs on the outfield wall, a sometimes unsightly staple of minor league and summer league baseball. No more sponsorships in game programs. No more announcements hawking products each half inning.
Just clean, unadulterated baseball — with the usual Banana antics: the dancing first base coach, the conga lines through the stands, the giant banana mascot named Split.”
