Barry Zito is famous for being a professional baseball player in MLB, who uses pitching techniques such as curveball, seam fastball, two-seam fast ball, circle changeup and cutter-slider.
His baseball career started back in 1999 draft when he was picked by the Oakland Athletics with the 9th pick of the first round. Zito would then become one of the best pitchers in the league, winning prestigious awards such as 1999 Pac-10 Pitcher of the Year, multiple All-Star awards and 2012 ML Lou Gehrig Memorial Award.
He’s so good at pitching that even fellow baseball great Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez couldn’t hide his astonishment, stating “It’s such a high one (curveball), and it drops three to four feet. You might as well not even look for it because you’re not going to hit it.” Zito also owns a hybrid two-seam fastball and cutter-slider style, which is one of his favorite pitching techniques.
