Angel, Hank Conger at the OC Zoo! #Free Admission! @Angels @OCZoo @IrvineParkRR
Families get into the OC Zoo FREE and meet the Anaheim Angel, Hank Conger!
OC Parks and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have teamed up to provide children and families with a free day at the OC Zoo. On Saturday, September 7, at 11 a.m., Angels catcher Hank Conger will make a special appearance at the OC Zoo and all visitors wearing Angels gear will receive free admission. In addition, all visitors wearing Angels gear will get half price rides on the train at Irvine Park Railroad. Both offers are good for the entire day.
While at the OC Zoo, Conger will take part in a special animal presentation with OC Zoo animal keepers and take photos with event attendees. Families are invited to visit the zoo, meet Conger, learn first-hand about his career in the majors, and take photos with him. As many guests as possible will be allowed to meet and take pictures with Conger, however, only the first 100 will be guaranteed spots at the animal presentation and photos with the Angels catcher.
Conger is from Huntington Beach, California and was drafted 25th overall by the Angels in the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft directly out of high school. He was selected to represent the United States in the 2010 All-Star Future Game and hit a three-run home run, earning him MVP honors. He made his major league debut in 2010.

Animals on exhibit include black bears, mountain lions, bald eagle, island fox, ocelot, red-tailed hawks, great horned owls, coyotes, turkey vultures, coati and more. The zoo also features a Children’s Zoo with domestic goats, sheep, rabbits, doves and pheasants.
