Price Named to Roger Clemens Watch List

Nov. 28, 2006

HOUSTON -- Junior pitcher David Price was named to the preseason Roger Clemens Award Watch List, recognizing the top pitcher in college baseball.

Price was a three-time National Pitcher of the Week honoree in 2006 and finished the year with a 9-5 record and a school record 155 strikeouts in 110.1 innings. His 12.6 strikeouts per nine innings was third best nationally and No. 1 in the SEC. He was named BA's Summer Player of the Year after going 5-1 with a 0.20 ERA with 61 strikeouts and only seven walks in 44.0 innings for Team USA. He is widely considered to be among the top prospects in next June's amateur baseball draft.

The finalists for the 2007 Roger Clemens Award will be selected in voting by a national panel that includes: all Division I head baseball coaches, a selection of national media who cover collegiate baseball, the 16 winners of the R. E. "Bob" Smith Award, which was presented to the top player in the country in Houston in 1988-2003.

In addition, the 10 previous finalists for the Clemens Award are also issued ballots. The 2007 award will be presented at a gala dinner next July. The event is administered by the Greater Houston Baseball Association, which has donated more than $300,000 to the charities from the net proceeds from the first three dinners.
