ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - David Price is all warmed up for the college football season.
The Tampa Bay Rays' ace wore a Vanderbilt helmet, football jersey and pants during his bullpen session before Wednesday night's home game against the Los Angeles Angels.
Rays manager Joe Maddon is known for keeping the mood light. With college football starting this week, he invited Tampa Bay players and team personnel to wear the jerseys of their favorite teams when the Rays travel to the West Coast on Thursday night.
Price went to Vanderbilt, and the reigning AL Cy Young winner got all dressed up for his bullpen work. Vanderbilt's opener is Thursday night when it hosts Mississippi.
