Product Description


After watching his career as a professional baseball player go down in flames, Cy Young Award-winner Barry Zito discovered a real connection with God and a renewed passion for life.

In 2007, pitcher Barry Zito signed a seven-year, $126 million contract with the San Francisco Giants. At that time, it was the largest contract ever given to a pitcher. He was at the top of his game, in peak physical condition, and had the kind of financial security most people can only dream of.

He was also miserable. And it began to show. Zito's career declined over the next few years until he hit rock bottom watching from the bench as his team won the World Series in 2010.

In the months that followed, Zito came face-to-face with the destructiveness of his own ego his need to be viewed as the best. He also came face-to-face with God and with the truth that he was loved no matter what he achieved.

In Curveball, Zito shares his story with honesty and transparency. The ups and the downs. The wins and losses. By sharing his experiences as a man who had everything except happiness, Zito offers readers a path through adversity and toward a life defined by true success.

About the Author


Barry Zito

Barry Zito

Barry Zito knows a thing or two about life and its curveballs. Zito had a virtually unstoppable curve that often proved unbeatable. He earned the coveted Cy Young Award right out of the gate at age twenty-four and is a two time World Series champion. In 2007, he signed a seven-year, $126 million contract with the San Francisco Giants. At the time, it was the largest contract ever given to a pitcher. After retiring from his baseball career in 2015, Zito immediately turned his full attention to his second love and began crafting the songs that would fill his first album. NO SECRETS was released in 2017. Now, Barry is set to release his autobiography, aptly titled "Curveball." In it, he shares his story with honesty and transparency. The ups and downs. The wins and losses. From being a playboy to coming face to face with God, he offers readers guidance through life's most difficult obstacles and a path toward finding true success.
