What made them stand out on TikTok was how they performed choreographed dances every game. People started making their videos go viral, and the rest is history.

The Bananas have nine rules: every inning counts, the game is under a two-hour time limit, no stepping out of the box, no bunting, batters can steal first, no walks allowed, 1 vs 1 showdown tiebreaker, no mound visits allowed and if a fan catches a foul ball, it's an out.
