After a long search, the Savannah Bananas have hired a Director of Fun. Tyler Gray, originally from Chattanooga, TN, has already made the move to Savannah to join the team on February 26.
Gray joins the Bananas after four years with Norwegian Cruise Line and as the Cruise Director for NCL’s flagship, the Norwegian Escape.
"During his time with Norwegian, he oversaw all onboard entertainment and activities for over 5,000 guests weekly and managed a team of 200 employees. Tyler is an entertainer and well-known Master of Ceremonies who has hosted events and been on stage with celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Douglas, Rod Stewart, celebrity chef Aaron Sanchez, Iron Chef Jose Garces, and Pitbull," says a Bananas spokesperson.

"I am extremely excited to be a part of the Bananas family and the Savannah community,” said Gray. “The Bananas have already made big waves not only in baseball but in the entertainment industry. They took the game of baseball and made it into a spectacular show that everyone can enjoy.”
Bananas owner Jesse Cole adds, “Over 200 people reached out to us from across the country to be the Director of Fun. Once we saw Tyler's videos and what he said he wanted to bring to Savannah, we knew this could be something special.”
“Tyler is a game changing hire for the Bananas organization. He brings energy and experience like we've never seen before. He is an idea machine and I can guarantee fans will see things they've never seen before at the stadium this summer. My one suggestion for the fans is to expect the unexpected with Tyler.”
Fans will be able to meet Tyler at upcoming events, including the Tap of the Morning Beer Fest on April 7.
