It seems almost inevitable that Nate Fish would manage a team of dancing, kilt-wearing, baseball-loving professional players in Savannah.

There are reasons why the team owner and fellow coaches call Fish — a career baseball man while maintaining a second life as a working writer and artist — a perfect fit for the Savannah Bananas’ brand.

He’s seen so much traveling the world to play and coach baseball, from New York City to Israel, Argentina to the Dominican Republic, Cape Cod to Los Angeles, and more than one trip to Tokyo.

True story: When Fish played in the top professional baseball league in Germany, he was paid for six months and amenities include a cell phone, a railway pass and housing.

“The housing they provided was in the mental hospital that just happened to be next to the field,” Fish recalled. “It was inexpensive.”
