ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The pitcher who gave up Derek Jeter’s 3,000th career hit has a deal to sign memorabilia connected with the milestone.
Tampa Bay’s David Price agreed with Steiner Sports to autograph collectibles, including baseballs and pictures. Some of the souvenirs will bear the inscription, “I Gave Up DJ’s 3K,” and be signed by both Price and Jeter.
Jeter became the first Yankee to reach 3,000 hits when he homered off Price last Saturday at Yankee Stadium.
