We are a team of mostly Zoo staffers - primarily keepers, but we'll throw in some vet techs & education staff and hell, even some senior management once in a while. We also welcome family and friends (and former employees!) to the team if they want to play. 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 measley run in the semi-finals. We love the spirit of battle, the camradarie, the challenge. We need the exercise. We're competitive, but we keep it loose - I'm proud to say none of us are obnoxious jackasses. 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. We usually have a good time. Damn straight. See you on the field.
