Pitcher who gave up Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit gets autograph deal
Or is it really that bad? Apparently not -- turns out Price might be able to profit from his role in the Yankee star's big moment.
Price has agreed to a deal with Steiner Sports to autograph memorabilia, including baseballs and pictures, connected with Jeter's milestone. Some of the items will have the inscription, "I Gave Up DJ's 3K" and will be signed by both players.
And if this venture doesn't work out, maybe Price can start signing "I came in second in Cy Young voting" memorabilia.
