Meet Barry Zito, an American professional baseball player who plays for the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball. Zito is said to be the new romantic interest of Paris Hilton. See a video and a biography of Barry Zito here.
Barry was recently seen with Paris Hilton at the grand opening of MyHouse, a nightclub. Paris was reportedly all over him and was really happy with his company.
Whether it was drinking, hugging, whispering, laughing or holding hands, the two were focused only on each other – and Hilton looked really happy, a clubgoer tells us.
As a biography, Barry Zito was born on May 13, 1978 in Las Vegas, Nevada so his age is 30. He attended the UC Santa Barbara and was named Freshman All-America with a good strikeout record. He then got transferred to USC where he was named first-team All-America. He also played in the Cape Cod League.
Zito was selected by the Oakland Athletics in the 1999 MLB draft. He finished third in the 2001 season of the American League with 8.61 strikeouts per nine innings. He striked-out more than 200 batters in the next season and was chosen as the winner of the 2002 AL Cy Young Award with a 23-5 record.
He stormed into the limelight in 2007 when he was signed-up by the San Francisco Giants for $126m in a seven-year deal. The contract money was the highest given to any MLB pitcher at that time.
His 2008 season was his worst with 10 losses recording in one season. He went for 0–6 with a 7.53 ERA and 11 strikeouts before May 1 only and was moved to bullpen.
Barry started a charity called Strikeouts for Troops for the military hospitals’ support. He donates $400 for every strikeout he throws. He has appeared as a guest in the hit TV show JAG.
