Rays Price offers "deep apology" for Twitter posts
Rays LHP David Price addressed the Saturday night Twitter posts he made, saying he was "sending a a deep apology to everyone that has been affected" by his actions.
"That is not the way anybody should handle themselves at any time, especially myself should handle something of that nature,'' Price said.
"I'm a person that I feel that takes pride in character and that was probably the exact opposite of that. I hurt a lot of people. I embarrassed myself, I embarrassed my family, I embarrassed this organization. And it's not good.
"It's not good for baseball, it's not good for our team, especially at a time right now, and I'm deeply sorry. I let my emotions completely take over the situation. I've never felt anything like that before in my life. I want to be big, I want to do great things for this team on that field, especially in moments like that. I feel like I let our organization down, I let my teammates down. It was a very dark spot in my career up to this point.
"It doesn't set well with me. I know I've hurt a lot of people and that's probably the worst part about it. I feel like I'm somebody who tries to treat people the same way that they would treat me. I give people the benefit of the doubt, and I didn't do that. And I'm sorry.''
