All-Star Animals

Check out our animal all-star lineup, carefully selected according to natural abilities!  Many player assignments were contested by keepers, but the team manager’s selections will stand. 

“Tigers are better at shortstop than lemurs — their legs are too short and they have no range — with those long arms should be at 1st. Lions and Tigers are your best double play combination. Don’t want to second guess the manager, just saying…”

Mike Land - Cat Canyon

“I would just like to point out that a ring-tailed lemurs’ hind legs are longer than their arms, and are excellent leapers because of their impressive quads and ankle joints. They can quickly cover a wide range…. and not to mention have the mental capacity for quick thinking just like a short-stop should in order to make important plays.”
