Barry Zito announced his retirement from baseball.
The 37-year old southpaw leaves the game after 15 big-league seasons with 165 wins and a career 4.04 ERA. He was one of the more dominant lefties in the game when he first appeared on the scene for the A's and had one of the finest 12-6 curves you've seen. He suffered from a drop in velocity when he left the A's and headed across the bay to the Giants and while he was never the same pitcher he was when he was with Oakland, he was still very much a part of three World Series championship teams in San Francisco.
