SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - We are only 44 days away from the home opener for the Savannah Bananas. This year there will be a new addition to Grayson Stadium.
The team is adding the ABR Stadium Club on the third base side of the grounds, with good sightlines to play on the diamond. They hope to have the building in place by April 22, and it's designed to maintain the integrity of Grayson.
"It's 90 years old. It's a really cool historical ballpark but if we can keep adding new pieces like this every year, it will maintain its historical relevance. It will be brick, it will match the rest of the ballpark, but can we add new things each year for our fans to have really cool ammonites," said Bananas' President, Jared Orton.
The ABR Stadium Club will have room for up to 125 people and it will include an air-conditioned indoor space along with a patio.
It can be used year round.
The Bananas home opener is June 1 against the Florence Red Wolves.
