Zito lights up more than the opposition

Barry Zito, a pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, helped launch the 20th annual Macy’s Christmas Tree Lighting on Tuesday in an event benefiting UCSF Children’s Hospital. The official tree lighting takes place at 6 p.m. the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 27, in Union Square. Macy’s and UCSF host an annual fundraiser for a Children’s Hospital program that supports families whose kids have life-threatening illnesses.
