Team Zoo 2013

Team Zoo

Team Zoo has normally been a team of mostly zoo staffers - primarily keepers, with some education, maintenance and management once in a while. We also welcome family and friends (and former employees, and former rivals!) to the team if they want to play and have come to rely on them in recent years. We've got everybody coming back from a playoff-making 2012 team, so if experience means more than growing old, we might not be half bad. With a little luck, maybe we'll hit .500! We've been in this league (CCSL) since 2001 and have yet to make it to the finals, but we finished in 3rd in 2005 and lost to the eventual champion by 1 measly run in the semi-finals. Last year we finally made the post-season again and got blown the hell out, but we were there! (and the game was close for 4 1/2 innings). We love the spirit of battle, the camaraderie and the challenge, and we need the exercise. We're competitive, but we keep it loose. We certainly don't like to lose but the world will not end if we do. It's supposed to be fun so we keep it that way, and we usually have a good time. Let's roll.
