On Monday, Barry Zito returned to the diamond in San Francisco ... as a musician
Over his 15-year career with the A's and the Giants, Barry Zito won a Cy Young Award, appeared in three All-Star Games and stunned the entire Bay Area with his luxurious coiffure:
Zito made his final appearance on the mound back in 2015, when he made one last start in Oakland against his former teammate, Tim Hudson. But it wasn't until Monday of this week that he made his return to San Francisco, before the Giants' 3-0 loss to the Nationals.
However, he wasn't there to pitch. He was there to perform. His debut EP, "No Secrets," came out earlier this year, and he sang two songs from it before the game started.
The EP hit Billboard at No. 15 on the Americana/Folk charts and at No. 39 on the Country Album charts, which basically makes him the Drake of his genre:
