Jesse and Emily Cole, the owners of the the world famous Savannah Bananas, share how they bet on their vision and themselves to create one of the most popular teams in sports history. In this special Bananas takeover of the podcast, the Coles talk about how they revolutionized the game of baseball by pulling in lessons outside their industry, reframing their concept of failure, and placing fans first in everything they do. They also share their approach to parenting and the fulfillment they've gained though being foster parents. The Savannah Bananas are an exhibition baseball team based in Savannah, Georgia. The team was founded in 2016 and has played at Grayson Stadium since its inaugural season. Until 2022, the Bananas competed in the Coastal Plain League's (CPL) West division, where they won three Petitt Cup championships (2016, 2021, and 2022). The team has sold out every game since the first season in Savannah and every city on the Banana Ball World Tour. The team has been featured by ESPN, The Wall Street Journal, and Sports Illustrated because of its on-field hijinks and viral videos.

The Savannah Bananas think there's a better way to do almost everything. So they try it all. Some people may think they're crazy. But they are okay with that. No matter what, they just want one thing - to make baseball fun and ultimately give fans the best possible experience at the ballpark. They call this Fans First. Emily Cole is the owner of the Savannah Bananas with her husband, Jesse Cole, which is all about making baseball fun with a Fans First mentality. They're passionate about making baseball fun and are currently planning the 2023 Banana Ball World Tour which will take the Bananas across the US.

Prior to her work with Fans First Entertainment which began in 2011, Emily spent time with Ripken Baseball and the Augusta GreenJackets as well as the Vermont Lake Monsters and the Binghamton Mets.

Emily Cole is the Owner and Director of Fun of the Savannah Bananas, a viral sensation and touring baseball team centered around the idea of fans having a great experience, win or lose. Since graduating college, Emily has worked with several baseball franchises and consistently discovered new ways to put the fans first and create unique and memorable experiences you wouldn't find at other ballparks. After 7 years of experience in the baseball industry, Emily and her husband created the Savannah Bananas, one of the most  recognizable baseball teams outside of the major leagues due to the way they create a phenomenal fan experience. In this interview, Emily goes bananas about putting fans first, eliminating friction, and making baseball fun.   Putting Fans First   "For us, it is always going to come down to putting fans first."   Fans come first. It's a simple recipe to success, and it's something the Savannah Bananas have made sure they always prioritize. Whether it's the unlimited food included with the price of your ticket or watching the middle-aged dad dance team, Emily has made sure there is something for every type of fan at a Bananas game. By creating a truly memorable experience where there is something for every guest big or small, the fans feel included. They'll rave about the positive experience everywhere, leading to increased media presence, more ticket sales, and people coming back for more.   However, putting fans first goes deeper than the scripted experience. In every aspect of the operation, Emily has ensured that the fans are always the center of attention. Before players even get their uniform, they go through a multiple-hour course about putting fans first to ensure that the players are creating the best experience possible. By bringing in players and employees dedicated to the fans, Emily has made an operation that truly makes everyone a part of the family.  Eliminating Friction   "Your experience as a fan is scripted long before you come."   It's simple, guests don't enjoy it when there are inconveniences. However, Emily shares how  the Savannah Bananas experience is scripted as close to perfection as possible. By thinking about the possible roadblocks and learning from previous mistakes, guests will find their experience to take much less work. Although unlimited free food may sound like a logistical nightmare, the operation works perfectly for the guest, and they get to avoid line delays from payment issues, as well as taking out their own wallet.   Emily knows the Bananas aren't immune to curveballs. After announcing their locations for their upcoming season-long tour, the website shut down because there were so many people trying to buy tickets. While this is a good problem to have, it's important to still learn from these mistakes and try to make the guest experience as frictionless as possible, whether it's online, in the stands, or in the ballpark.  Making Baseball Fun   "We're a baseball team. but we're better known as a traveling circus."   Baseball is a popular sport, but it isn't loved by every single person. By creating a fun and interactive experience, Emily has seen the Bananas go from players refusing to dance all the way to choreographed dances that go viral on TikTok. By working to create a team that has fun with the fans, baseball can be fun for everyone. In addition, the Bananas don't script their games, keeping the same competitive spirit that baseball is loved for.   After every game, the Bananas host a block party where all the dancing dads, grandmas, mascots, and players meet with the fans and sign autographs. By encouraging the players to spend time with the fans and the fans to spend time with the players, Emily has created a symbiotic relationship that encourages and fosters growth in both the guest and employee experiences.

My Business On Purpose

My Business On Purpose

Believe it or not, every time a customer does business with you they come in with expectations both spoken and unspoken. So, how do we manage those and shape those to match what we have to offer? Well, let's talk about that today! Happy Monday friends, Thomas Joyner here with Business on Purpose. Last week, my wife found a deal online. $79 bucks for your first visit. Introductory offer, book here. She ended up calling the office to make an appointment and was so excited to go. She sat down, went through the full experience, and absolutely loved it! About halfway through, the receptionist came over and brought her bill. $240!!! She immediately texted me and was pretty bummed. I told her to just show them the intro web page and ask about it. “Oh, that's an old promotion. Sorry about that.” And that was it. No one told her as she was running up a bill more than 3 times what she expected. Nope, just added to it and didn't even flinch. After her having a short conversation with the receptionist, they lowered it to $200 and she left.  But here's the frustrating part. The service was amazing. Probably worth every bit of the 200 bucks she paid. The place was clean, the service amazing, the staff friendly…and yet because she walked in with an incredibly different expectation for price, she left with a bad taste in her mouth and unable to recommend the place or really want to go back. It felt like a bait and switch.  And to this day, the promotion is still up online… further adding to the belief that it's a bait and switch. Let me flip over to the other side of the equation. The Savannah Bananas minor league baseball team. The first time I went I was a little shocked at how much tickets cost. I'm used to paying 10 bucks or so for minor league night with the Charleston River dogs. I noticed that the price was a good bit higher, starting around 25 bucks, so I was curious if it would be worth it.  From the moment we stepped foot at the stadium, we were entertained. High-fived, laughed, high energy, all the food and drink you could want all included, not wanting to miss a minute of the action.  We left feeling like we would have paid double the price for what we got and the actual product far exceeded what we knew we were going to pay. See the difference? So, if you were to look at your marketing and sales…where do you fail to live up to the expectations? Maybe you need to start by simply writing down the expectations your customers arrive with. And then one by one walking through them and addressing them. If it's timely service, how can you meet or exceed that? If it's value pricing (if that's your goal), how can you be upfront about that to exceed the customers expectations? Maybe it's being innovative and providing new solutions… how do you stack up? Maybe it's having a team that is friendly and joyful? Send some surveys out to customers to find out how you stack up or call up someone you do business with, take them to lunch, and just ask. They will tell you! Because here's the thing… this goes for relationships, dating, business, everything! Discontentment is a direct result of unmet expectations! But if you learn to manage and understand and exceed expectations, or set them appropriately ahead of time…you will create raving fans in your business with long-term relationships where customers come back time and time again. The opposite, of not knowing what expectations are out there or maybe even manipulating them to get people in the door is shortsighted at best and a horrible business model. There's a word that one of my mentors walked me through years ago. Congruence…it's this thought that what's on the outside matches what's on the inside. I think we spend too much time trying to hide one or the other instead of matching the two up and being who we say we are and showing who we say we are. Once we learn to set appropriate expectations and deliver or exceed those expectations, we can finally be a business that will get referred by everyone we do business with. So sit down today, create a list of expectations our clients have, and see where we stack up! Do it! Put in the time and see where you land. Thanks!

In this episode, Jen and Aaron are joined by Mat and Megean Wolf. Mat Wolf is the Savannah Bananas' trick pitcher, while Megean will share all about her experience going on the mound during a professional baseball game. Megean started playing softball when she was nine, and became competitive quickly thereafter. She played in college in Oklahoma City on scholarship. She had no intention of playing as part of the Savannah Bananas, but one day she caught the attention of the club, and they asked if she wanted to join. Mat was excited to have Megean join the team. Megean was the one who encouraged him to try out for the Bananas in the first place. Learning more about pitching and being able to pitch at a Bananas game was a fun highlight for her. Mat used to coach high school baseball, and he's now a firefighter in Oklahoma City. He's always been a goofy person who likes to have fun, and he's always been passionate about making other people laugh. He played baseball in college, and now he gets to pick that dream up and live it out with the Savannah Bananas. Performing on the baseball field can come with a lot of pressure. Megean's dad was really hard on her growing up. When she or Mat are struggling out on the field, she reminds them their identity is in Christ, not in the game. Remembering who you are as a person can help you stay grounded when it comes time to play.

Secondly, the Atlanta Falcons gave a valiant effort against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi stadium, but they came up short in their fourth quarter comeback attempt.

Lastly, the Savannah Bananas have made a name for themselves by creating a fun environment for fans to attend.

The NBA is now a 365-day league and it's never been more present in pop culture.

Unthinkable with Jay Acunzo

This story is a surreal, escapist journey into the true story about how the Savannah Bananas became exceptional by being the exception. This minor league baseball team has majorly passionate fans -- with more social media success than some of the biggest teams in the Major Leagues, and a plan to disrupt the MLB itself. This story is told through the ever-optimistic, yellow-tux wearing Jesse Cole, the owner of the team.Not a fan of the sport? No worries. This isn't really a story about baseball. It's a story about our collective desire to make things that matter -- to ourselves, certainly, but to those we serve most especially. This is a story about what it means to truly build something that is, in Jesse's words, "fans first" -- and all the weird, wacky, wonderful things that follow.SHARE THE SHOW:Help others find Unthinkable in their favorite podcast player by sharing this link: jayacunzo.com/unthinkable-podcast***IN THIS EPISODE:Andrew and Pete of ATOMIC: atomic.site // twitter.com/AndrewAndPete***MORE FROM JAY:Playing Favorites newsletter: stories and frameworks for creating work that resonates.Coaching and consulting: Hire Jay to work with you 1:1 on the most important elements of your brand or projects.Or, hire Jay to develop and/or host a show for your brand: jayacunzo.com/shows***SPONSOR: The JuiceThe Juice is like Spotify for B2B learning: a beautiful, curated collection of the best creators and resources serving sales and marketing pros today.
