Episode 3: Zack Frongillo

Broadcast date: 27 October 2022

The Savannah Bananas is not what you might expect from a US baseball team; players break off to twerk or do a TikTok challenge, and the Entertainment Director, Zack Frongillo, is a trained classical dancer.

We love seeing dance sneak into unexpected places. In this episode, we hear from Zack who tells us how the Savannah Bananas in Georgia are making a double play with dance and baseball and bringing more fun to their fans in the process. If you thought the team might be a stranger to dance breaks and pirouettes, then think again. Let’s play ball…

Zack Frongillo

Zack Frongillo, the Littleton, Colorado native, began his dance career at the age of 16 and continued his dance career at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. While in college, Zack took his studies overseas to the Korean National Sports University and trained with the Seoul National Ballet. Zack joined the Savannah Bananas after the spring series in 2021 and shortly thereafter joined full-time during the 2021 CPL Season as the Director of Entertainment. Previously, Zack was a Stage Manager for the Vegas Golden Knights Entertainment Team before their Inaugural Season in 2017 until eventually moving to Savannah in 2021. Zack was also the Entertainment Director for UNLV Hockey and assisted in regional tournaments with organizations such as the Pac-12, Mountain West, and WAC.
