My birthday present…

Guess who just got a box of autographed David Price baseballs? This guy!

Holy crap, thanks sis! I couldn’t have imagined a more awesome birthday present.

If you don’t know who David Price is, look him up and remember his name, because he is one of the rising starts in Major League Baseball. He is a local guy, born and raised in Middle Tennessee, who eventually went on to attend Vanderbilt University here in Nashville. As his legend grew during his college years, both locally and nationally, those who followed his career realized that there was a very good chance that he was going to be a dominant Major League pitcher some day. From there, Price would go on to become the 1st overall pick of the 2007 amateur MLB draft (Tampa Bay Rays). Since then, he has begun his minor league career by going 11-0 with a 1.87 ERA in 14 starts at Single A Vero Beach and Double A Montgomery. Just last week he was promoted to Triple A Durham (where he is making his debut as we speak) and there is a very good chance that he could get the big league call-up within the month. I’m telling you, if this guy stays healthy, he could very well be one of the greatest pitchers to ever play the game. He possesses three plus pitches and can blow a ball by a batter with a 98 mph fastball and break a his knee with a wicked slurve (slider/curve) all in the same at bat. And the best part, he’s a good dude. Everything I’ve ever read or heard has said just that, and my sister says he couldn’t be a nicer guy. Marry him then Erin! So, that was my birthday present story. Sorry it had nothing to do with the Titans. I was just really excited. Check out the links below because he may be your next favorite baseball player. I know he’s mine, now all we have to do is get him in a Braves uniform!

    You just had to one up me, didn’t you? I get an autographed David Price ball as a tip at work from David’s brother, and you get a whole box?! Oh well. I guess I should be happy with my lone ball (not in that way).
