While some of us know Barry Zito as a three-time MLB All-Star and former AL Cy Young Award pitcher, others know him as a musician.
He has been making music since he retired from baseball in 2015, and he’s incorporating baseball into it with his latest hit “Ballpark Kids,” which he co-wrote:
Part of the video appears to be shot in the Triple-A Nashville Sounds’ clubhouse, once the affiliate of the A's. As a matter of fact, you can see his A’s No. 75 uniform hanging behind him.
Zito was a recent participant (the rhino) on FOX’s “The Masked Singer,” which was part of the next chapter of his life in the music industry. He admitted he was a bit of a newbie, but appreciated the challenge -- even if he had to do it in the midst of welcoming his newest son into the world.
Across his 15 years in the league, Zito spent eight with the A’s and seven with the Giants, so he remained a staple in the all-time Bay Area athlete group.
