(KRON) — Left-handed pitcher Barry Zito announced his retirement from Major League Baseball Monday in a post for The Players’ Tribune.
Zito played 15 years of professional baseball. He spent 2000-2006 with the Oakland A’s, and 2007-2013 with the San Francisco Giants. He retires as an Athletic, though, playing his final season in 2015 with Oakland again.
The 37-year-old won the American League Cy Young Award in 2002, was a three-time All-Star, and won a World Series with the Giants in 2012.
Zito ends his career with a 165-143 record, a 4.04 ERA, and 1,885 strikeouts. He ends up being a rare fan favorite for both Bay Area baseball franchises.
