The Savannah Bananas were in Baton Rouge over the weekend and they did not disappoint! I was able to go and experience the show for the first time and it was pretty awesome. It was something like I had never experienced before... I went on Thursday, but what happened on Saturday was even better... Kim Mulkey was a part of the show and it was something...

In straight Kim Mulkey fashion, when she went to throw out the first pitch, the umpire called it a ball and Mulkey went nuts. The Dancing Umpire ended up "ejecting" Mulkey from the game...
