Now David Price can chew with a personal twist.
Gum is as much a part of major-league life as peanuts and Cracker Jack. Consider the Tampa Bay Rays left-hander a fan. Like other players, the reigning American League Cy Young Award winner will chew to stay relaxed and refreshed, on and off the mound.
Monday, he received a customized dispenser from 5 Gum, which will stay near his clubhouse stall at Tropicana Field for easy access. The peanuts and Cracker Jack? Those remain at concessions stands. But if you need a quick stick, Price is your guy.
Thanks @5gum for this customized vending machine! Now I can chew gum whenever I want! spon pic.twitter.com3hpTVv2Qi6 David Price (@DAVIDprice14) September 24, 2013
