The Philadelphia Zoo softball team is comprised of Zoo staff, family and friends. We have representatives from the animal department, education, animal health, and the treehouse, plus a spouse or two - keepers, vets, actors, and educators. We're a mix of colleagues, co-workers, friends and family who get together for physical activity, comaraderie and a little spirited competition. We joined our current league, the Center City Softball Leauge in 2001 when an opening occurred. It meant better competition, a guaranteed field to play on, and a game every week for 3 months straight. Prior to joining, Team Zoo played other intitutions and companies who fielded recreational teams. Play was casual at best. We practice and play on Edgely and Dairy Fields in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, PA - just a few short miles from the zoo.
