David Price

David Price is a Cy Young Award-winning pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays. The first overall selection in the 2007 draft, Price pitched out of the bullpen during the Rays' run through the 2008 playoffs and helped send the Rays to the World Series with a save in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series. The left-hander was the American League starter for the 2010 All-Star Game and won the AL Cy Young Award after a 20-win season in 2012. The Rays once gave out miniature versions of Price's French bulldog, Astro, whose popularity nearly rivals his owner's.
