Barry Zito was previously a pitcher in the MLB that played for the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants for a total of 15 seasons. His pitching repertoire consisted of a curveball, a four-seam fastball, a two-seam fastball, a circle changeup, and a cutter–slider.
Zito won the Cy Young Award in 2002 and made the American League All Star team on three separate occasions.
Zito is known for his idiosyncrasies and his offbeat personality. Early in his career, Zito dyed his hair blue. He earned the nicknames “Planet Zito” and “Captain Quirk” when with Oakland.
More important than everything mentioned above, Barry was able to lock down and marry Amber Seyer. A quick Google search will tell you more about her, but I think what you’re really looking for you’ll find below.
In other Major League Baseball news, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported that the Oakland Athletics may indeed be leaving Oakland. The A’s are awaiting the city of Oakland to decide on whether or not to move forward with their proposal of the $12 billion mixed-use development, which includes a new waterfront stadium at Oakland’s Howard Terminal. The MLB has allegedly encouraged the Athletics to look elsewhere in the meantime.
