RIP Joe Zito

I forgot to mention it in the Game Wrap, so I'll make a separate post.  Barry Zito lost his father, Joe, yesterday after what I understand was a long illness.  It's kind of a remarkable story I wish I knew more about.  Joe Zito and his wife were both accomplished musicians working in the movie industry.  Their son, Barry, showed an early passion for the game of baseball and Joe used all his resources to give Barry the best chance he could to live his dream.  That's what a good dad does.  Condolences to Barry and his extended family.

  1. Thoughts and prayers to Barry and his family..

    I'll be surprised if Barry pitches on Saturday. If he does, that will be an emotional game
