Price wins AL Cy Young Award
Nov. 14, 2012
NEW YORK (AP) -- David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays won the AL Cy Young Award on Wednesday in one of the closest votes ever.
Vanderbilt Head Coach Tim Corbin on Price winning the Cy Young Award:
"All of us who have been part of David's development will celebrate this prestigious award with him...needless to say we are beyond proud. I know that his left arm is special, but in my mind he epitomizes what a true-athlete and teammate are all about...David dignifies himself everyday with his character, humility and actions. He has maintained a child-like innocence for the game of baseball that is very natural...he plays for the "team" and relishes the relationships that are built inside of the game. His personal accomplishments have and will always be, team-driven. It's simple, if you have him in your team, your team will win and the experience will be more enjoyable because of his existence."
