Todd Zeile Biography
MLB journeyman, Todd Zeile was born September 9, 1965 in Van Nuys, California is a former third baseman and first baseman who played from 1989 to 2004. After graduating from UCLA, where he played as a catcher, Zeile played for 11 Major League teams during his career: the St. Louis Cardinals (1989-1995), Chicago Cubs (1995), Philadelphia Phillies (1996), Baltimore Orioles (1996), Los Angeles Dodgers (1997-1998), Florida Marlins (1998), Texas Rangers (1998-1999), New York Mets (2000-2001, 2004), Colorado Rockies (2002), New York Yankees (2003) and Montreal Expos (2003).
Zeile spent most of the 1990s as a third baseman, he was traded from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Florida Marlins along with Mike Piazza in 1998 for five playersm then signed a contract with the mets rejoining Piazza and he finished his career moving to first base for the Mets in 2000, who wanted him to replace John Olerud. In 1999, Zeile was part of a historic Rangers team. Along with Gregg Zaun and Jeff Zimmerman, he was one of three players on the team whose last names began with Z.
Zeile retired following the 2004 season. Having planned his retirement in advance (and with the Mets well out of the playoff race), Mets manager Art Howe let Zeile once again start as a catcher, his original position, on September 18, 2004. It was Zeile's first appearance there in 14 years. It was the second-longest span ever between appearances at the position. Gabby Street caught a game in 1931 after last having caught in 1912. Zeile's span is now the third longest, since Craig Biggio started the final game of his career at catcher after a 16 year span.
Since retiring from Major League Baseball, Zeile has pursued another passion, starting Green Diamond Entertainment, a film production company in California.
