Team Zoo Fun Facts:
Team Zoo turned 7 double plays.
 Third baseman Greg O'Neill caught a fly ball and forced out a Franklin runner at second (holding the ball himself) who had left the bag in inning 1 of game 3 for our first double play.
 Short stop Ken Pelletier turned his own double play 3 innings later when he fielded the ball, stepped on second for a force and threw to first baseman Sal DiStefano for the second out.
 Ken Pelletier, Amy Ivins and Sal DiStefano turned a classic 6-4-3 double play in inning 4 of game 6 vs. Academy.
 Third baseman Greg O'Neill got a force at third and threw to Becky Wolf at first for a DP in inning 2 of game 7 vs. the Board.
 Two innings later vs. the Board in game 7, Ken Pelletier, Amy Ivins and Becky Wolf turned another textbook 6-4-3 double play.
 In game 8 vs. the Board, Greg O'Neill fielded a grounder at third, stepped on the bag for a force and threw to Sal DiStefano at first for a double play in the 5th inning.
 Greg O'Neill caught a sharp line drive at third and threw to Sal DiStefano at first for a force on a baserunner who didn't tag, in inning 4 of game 13 vs. Commerce.
In the first inning of game 7 vs. the Board, left fielder Chris Law threw in to short stop Ken Pelletier (cut-off), who rifled to Kristen Lewis at home who tagged out a baserunner that was trying to turn a triple into a home run - perhaps our best team-defensive play of the season.
Catcher Bob Williams caught a ball thrown from short stop Ken Pelletier while guarding the plate and got trampled by a Franklin baserunner at home in inning 1 of game 11, but held on to the ball for the tag and one hell of a play.
Left fielder Chris Oberlin fielded a base hit in left and threw to third baseman Greg O'Neill who tagged out a Board baserunner trying to advance for a great play in the second inning of game 8.
Third baseman Greg O'Neill made 2 diving catches in game 10 vs. PBJ (1 grass, 1 dirt).
Outfielder Ron Fricke, playing in his only Team Zoo game this year at the Vet, made a full-out, airborne diving catch (on TURF) for a fantastic play in the 6th inning of game 15 vs. Daily News. Coincidentally, he made a full-out, airborne diving catch in the outfield of the only game he played in the 2002 season, as well.
In the fifth inning of game 15 at the Vet vs. Daily News, left fielder Chris Oberlin threw a rocket to home trying to get a baserunner out at the plate. Sensing it would be slightly late, pitcher Pete Hoskins cut it off near the mound and picked off the batter trying to sneak into third, where he was tagged out by Greg O'Neill.

Our best offensive inning saw us score 7 runs in inning 4 of game 9 vs. PCVB, in which we sent 13 batters to the plate (the entire lineup plus two) - the first 7 batters scored and the first 8 reached on base hits, and we even left the bases loaded.

We came from behind again in game 4 vs. Daily News, scoring 3 in the bottom of the 6th to take a 13-12 lead (courtesy of a 2-run home run by Chris Oberlin) and ending it with our excellent defensive stop in the top of the 7th.
Team Zoo needed 2 extra innings to beat Academy in game 6, where we came from behind yet again to win 11-10 by scoring two runs in the bottom of the ninth, after they went ahead 10-9 in the top of the inning.
Donna Ialeggio Pelletier hit the game-winning single in the clutch in game 6 to score Kristen Lewis for the final run.

[Things That Could Have Been...]
Against the Board in game 8, we held an 11-9 lead going into the bottom of the 6th, but gave up 5 runs in that inning and were skunked in the top of the 7th to lose the lead and the game.
Team Zoo led Franklin 14-7 in game 11 going into the fifth inning, but went scoreless over the last 3 innings and gave up 8 runs in those innings, including the last run in the bottom of the seventh inning with 2 outs (a triple that scored on an error).
We were only trailing Commerce 3-5 going into the top of the 5th inning of game 13, but gave up 10 runs in the next 2 innings and managed only 4 hits of our own in the last 3 innings.
Team Zoo led Academy in game 14 by 4 runs going into the bottom of the last inning. We had led the entire game. Chris Oberlin misplayed 2 balls in left field that got over his head, scoring 5 runs (1 was a grand slam) to lose the game almost singlehandedly.
Team Zoo played 6 games in 2003 that were decided by 1 run. 5 of those were decided in the very last at-bat, with 1 win and 1 loss each decided when there were 2 outs. The 4 we won were all come-from-behind wins, and the 2 we lost were all come-from-behind wins by the other team. We won the first 3, lost the next 2 (which would have made us a play-off team) and won the final game at the Vet, which was a nice capper to a decent season full of exciting finishes. And a lot of water.
Game 3 vs. Franklin was played in a light but persistantly annoying rain.
In game 4 vs. Daily News, the rain was slightly harder but exponentially more annoying.
Our first game in sunshine, game 5 vs. Commerce, produced a team who forgot how to hit a dry ball in daylight.
Game 6 vs. Academy was bright and warm until around the 7th inning, when it started to sprinkle... of course, guaranteeing our eventual victory.
It was overcast the entirety of game 15 vs. Daily News at the Vet, but it finally started to really rain about the 7th inning... which is when we started our first of 2 rallies that eventually won the game in extra innings.
It should be noted that vs. PCVB in game 9, they played with only 8 players who were all women - we supplied a catcher.
In game 10 vs. PBJ, Team Zoo played with 9 players, our first game with only 3 outfielders.
In inning 7 of game 1 vs. PCVB, the first four batters were Kristen, Chris L, Chris W, and Chris O.
Team Zoo handed out one black eye, courtesy of a ball off the bat of Bob Williams in game 1 vs. PCVB.
The very last game of 2002 vs. Daily News and the very first game of 2003 vs. PCVB very coincidentally had the exact same number of runs scored for (5), at bats (37), hits (16) and the same result: a loss.
