By Nathan Clinkenbeard
You may know him as David Price, Cy Young winner and Tampa Bay Rays ace. Others may know him as @DAVIDPrice14, Twitter professional.
The two are one person. When Price isn’t on the pitcher’s mound firing 95 mph fastballs toward the plate, he’s usually blowing up the social media world of Twitter with tweets to his fans, pictures of his dog Astro and hundreds of retweets.
Major League Baseball superstars from every city are joining Twitter to connect with their fans, and Price along with Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips are two of the most active and well-liked “tweeters.”

National foundation uses inspiration of three Hall of Fame legends to grant wishes and improve lives through baseball
Character and Courage Foundation Founder Bob Crotty talks about the first time he walked into a baseball stadium like it happened yesterday.
A couple times a year his father would load up the car to take them to a Cincinnati Reds game at old Crosley Field, but it was those first steps he took inside a ballpark that had him amazed and hooked forever. The passion that started as a young boy has grown into a life’s cause to ensure less fortunate kids have an opportunity to enjoy the national pastime.
During those trips to the ballpark when Crotty was a little kid, he always had to stop by the souvenir stand to get a memento before he left. Now more than 40 years later, his baseball collection at the Green Diamond Gallery in Cincinnati features over 4,000 artifacts from jerseys, bats, balls, souvenirs and more from some of the greatest players and moments in baseball history. ... continued in Baseball Youth Magazine
