Barry Zito, a former pitcher for the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants, performed for the first time in Nashville as a songwriter on Feb. 3. He appeared as part of an ASCAP showcase at the Bluebird Café.

Zito announced his retirement from professional baseball in October. He has turned his attention to songwriting full-time, according to a spokesperson for ASCAP.

He was joined in-the-round by hit songwriters Marla Cannon-Goodman and Matt Jenkins, and emerging songwriter-artist Jameson Rodgers.
