After anxiously awaiting the Tigers game to end, David Price raced to Omaha to watch his alma mater, Vanderbilt.
Athletes often pay homage to their colleges and love showing their support for them when they can. However, David Price seems to take it to another level with his support of Vanderbilt University, where his storied career led to him being drafted first overall in 2007. With the Commodores in the College World Series, Price had planned a trip to their opening game.
However, a rain delay of almost two hours in the fifth inning put a damper on his plans, which he took to Twitter in an anxious rant. After the Tigers game finally ended, the former Cy Young Award winner raced to the airport and jetted to Omaha in time for the baseball game. He took in the game, gave an interview, and took selfies with fans. Meanwhile, the Vanderbilt game also had a rain delay in the 6th inning, causing the game to be suspended until today. Price didn’t seem to care though, later exclaiming his joy on Twitter.
