I’m not sure why I didn’t know that one of the best/worst pitchers of all time is an aspiring country singer. From the 40 seconds of the YouTube video I watched, I can tell Barry Zito has what it takes to make it in country music.
He’s got the made up country twang accent to go along with the distressed poop face every country singer makes when they try to hit a high note. He’s wearing a backwards hat with a simple t-shirt, no brands. He has it all.
If that song doesn’t make you love life I’m not sure what will. It goes without saying that I’m now Barry’s number one fan. Lefty pitchers who don’t throw so hard stick together. I’m ready to ride with Barry to the top, leaving those other country singing pitchers like Jake Peavy in the dust. All I know is this. Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert, Blake Shelton…you guys should be worried.
