Price seemed impressed by his first visit to the facility
"It was good," said Price of his visit, which allowed him to meet some of the youth baseball and softball academy players. "It was different than I thought it was going to be. That facility was awesome. I don't think I've really been to a facility like that for young kids to play baseball.
"They're giving them the chance to be successful on the baseball field, and that's what we need."
Price has been the Rays' nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award each of the past two seasons for his sportsmanship and community involvement.
