Jesse Cole is the founder of Fans First Entertainment, which operates the Gastonia Grizzlies and the Savannah Bananas. Cole joined the industry in 2008 as General Manager of the Gastonia Grizzlies. It was here that he started providing a circus like atmosphere at his ballparks. From dancing players, Grandma Beauty Pageants, and Flatulence Fun Nights to Porta-Jon giveaways and garbage can nachos, Cole has tried it all.
The "show" worked and the Grizzlies began breaking attendance records annually. In 2014, Cole bought the Grizzlies and started Fans First Entertainment. In 2015, the Coles started a new Coastal Plain League team in Savannah, GA. It was announced on February 25, 2016 that the team would be named the Savannah Bananas. From there, the team quickly became a hit all over the country, in part thanks to coverage from national media outlets, including ESPN, CNN, and Good Morning America. Merchandise sold to all 50 states and 6 countries.
Cole's passion is to provide fun for as many people as possible and to inspire others to be different and stand out.
