North Carolina Teen’s Catch Wins Game For Savannah Bananas In Kannapolis
I’m kind of embarrassed. Up until the first part of this week. I’d never heard of the “Savannah Bananas.” And as a huge sports fan, I’m not sure how that happened. The Bananas can best be described as baseball’s barnstorming equivalent to basketball’s Harlem Globetrotters. For the past two nights, they’ve sold out their exhibition games at the Kannapolis Cannonballers Stadium. Last night’s game wasn’t ended by any of the Bananas’ shenanigans. No, a Concord teen’s catch stole the show.
Couldn't write up the last out of the game any better than this 🤷♂️🤷♂️🤷♂️— Savannah Bananas (@TheSavBananas) July 12, 2023

15-year-old Khamani Faggart plays baseball at Winkler Middle School. He was sitting with all of his teammates in the stands when he snagged a foul ball-ending the game, and giving the Bananas the 5-1 win. I know, I know, this is “Bananas Ball.” They have their own unique rules. One of them is if a fan catches a foul ball, it’s an out. “I wasn’t paying attention to that bat at the moment, and I saw the ball coming our way, and I was like, ‘Watch out!’” said Faggart in the QC News.
