David Price Named To 2014 All-Star Team

David Price Named To His Fourth All-Star Team

David  Price

David Price will take the mound against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night baseball with the knowledge that he has been selected as a member of the 2014 American League All-Star squad.

He was also named to the All-Star team in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Thus far in 2014 he has posted a record of 7-7 and an ERA of 3.50 but has struck out an American League leading 153 batters while only issuing 17 walks in his 131 innings of work.

He will be looking to be part of a winning All-Star squad for the first time in his career. In 2010 he started the game and threw a pair of scoreless innings striking out one in a 3-1 loss to the National League. In 2011 he was named to the squad but did not appear due to a turf-toe issues as the National League won the game 5-1. In 2012 the National League again bested the American League this time 8-0 but Price was able to work a scoreless third inning.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
