Next up for the All-Star Stitches set – a former Cy Young winner.
As a reminder, I went to the All-Star game and Home Run Derby in Cincinnati. So I’m collecting this All-Star Stitches set! These cards that have swatches from the Monday practice festivities.
This is the 36th card toward this set.
Card number: STIT-DP
Player: David Price
How I got the card: COMC in December (Black Friday)
How he made the roster: Price was selected as one of the starting pitchers from the players’ ballot.
This was his 5th All-Star selection.
First half stat line: 9-2/2.38/115
All-Star game: Price was the winning pitcher in this game. He came in for Felix Hernandez in the bottom of the 4th inning, with the game tied at 1. He struck out Paul Goldschmidt and Bryce Harper, then got Buster Posey to line out to right field. Not a bad days work – 3 outs on 11 pitches. The AL scored in the top of the 5th, getting a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.
