WATCH: Minor League Baseball Player Lets His HOT Bat Do the Talking

You're asking why there is a photo of bananas in the cover photo to this story when the headline screams something different?

Well, it's because we're restricted from showing photos of the minor-league baseball team called the Savannah Bananas, who have introduced some quirky promotions in an effort to appeal to a lot of fans. For instance, if a fan catches a foul ball, the batter is out!

In this video above, and below, you see a player on that team as he prepares to take his at-bat with his bat ON FIRE!

Yes, you read that right.

Now while you might expect for the video to show a home run, the "Hot" batter, Zak Whalin of Fort Myers, hits a liner up the middle into a shift and almost gets nailed at first.

Still, what an innovative way to promote a sport that needs some juice!
